The view towards the Hayes Close End of the ground, shortly after the start of the first day of the County Championship match between Essex and Notts. A couple of seconds after I pressed the shutter the Essex opening batsman, John Maunders, here playing Notts' Luke Fletcher off the back foot, was run out for 2 by a direct hit from the cover fielder Steve Mullaney (out of shot on the right). This was the first of fifteen wickets to fall on an eventful first day. I don't imagine I was the only visiting supporter reminded of the old Radcliffe Road Top Deck at Trent Bridge by this good-as-the-telly viewpoint from the upper tier of the River Stand. The black sightscreens to the left of the picture are left over from the Twenty20 game played the day before - a form of the game in which a white ball is used.
