I’m so chuffed for Harry Brook following his maiden first-team hundred against Essex at Chelmsford.

Given the context of the game and how bowlers dominated, I think you could go as far as saying it was a match-winning innings.

It was a great win for us. Hopefully we can bounce on that and get another one against Surrey at the Oval, which would set us up perfectly for the Royal London one-day Cup from next week.

When you get a win from nowhere like that, it often gives you more momentum than just a normal win. Fingers crossed, that’s the case.

We had spoken as a team about counter-punching in those situations, which Jonny Bairstow started in the second innings and Harry carried on.

It’s interesting because, with the way one-day and T20 cricket is evolving and having an impact on first-class and Test cricket, I can see teams being more creative in periods of matches or more flexible with their batting order.
