Shukriya Pakistan

10-wicket star Mohammad Amir led Essex towards a two-day win over Yorkshire at Scarborough to leave them in sight of a first Specsavers County Championship title in 25 years.

Essex completed their 19-point success, a sixth win in nine matches this season, shortly after tea by chasing only a 33 target for the loss of two wickets.

The visitors are now 46 points clear of second place with five matches remaining, although other results are still to come this week.
