Head Coach Peter Moores reflects on a draw against Essex at the Cloudfm County Ground in the LV=Insurance County Championship, as the opening block of four day games comes to a close ahead of the Vitality Blast. 

Rain dampened hopes of a result through the fixture with the entirety of day two washed out, yet there was ample time on day one for a trio of visiting half-centuries for Lyndon James, Steven Mullaney and Joe Clarke, as well as a milestone five wicket haul for Brett Hutton, during the course of which the seamer took his 200th First-Class wicket.
