ESS vs KET Pitch Report

County Ground, Chelmsford will host the Round 1 game between Essex and Kent. The track offers a good amount of help to pacers and the first hour will be crucial with the new ball. The weather will be pretty clear on Saturday at Chelmsford. Batting first might be a good call on this track to avoid trouble in batting in 4th innings.
