The Essex club is 2 points behind Surrey who are currently leading the championship halfway into it. Essex and Durham are to face off against each other in a match on Sunday at Chlemsford.

Eathan Bosch’s early performances

The South African Pacer has marked his name into the game early on, as he paved his own way through domestic cricket in South Africa.

26 year old Eathan has claimed a total of 92 wickets in just 38 first-class matches ever since he made his debut for KwaZulu-Natal in 2017.

“I’m super excited to be here,” said Bosch. “It was a pretty easy deal to accept, and I’m looking forward to my time with the Eagles. It will be nice to play outside of South Africa, and to see what my skills can bring to the table.”

“It will definitely be a learning experience, but I’m looking forward to experiencing a bit more of the country, and especially Chelmsford!”

Essex head coach on the new addition

Essex Head Coach, Anthony McGrath, added: “Eathan is a terrific addition for us, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team.

“There’s huge value in a well-stocked seam bowling cupboard, and with his experience of bowling in different conditions, he will add a new dimension to our attack. He will also be able to push everyone around him to new heights, which will be extremely beneficial as the Championship season heads towards its finale.”

Eathan has also made his name in the batting role as he has scored a century and seven fifties in making 1,053 first-class runs at 22.89. Bosch has also played for South Africa in the U-19 team for 2 Tests and 2 ODIs. He is yet to make his way into the senior teams as of now.
