The 2004 English cricket season saw the English cricket team record a 4-0 Test series whitewash over the West Indies[1] and a comfortable 3-0 win over New Zealand.[2] Their one-day form was sporadic, however. In the Natwest Trophy, they failed to make the final, which saw New Zealand defeat the West Indies by 107 runs. In the Natwest Challenge, they beat India 2-1.[3] In domestic cricket, Warwickshire won the County Championship.



After scoring 642 in the first innings of their County Championship against Glamorgan at the County Ground in September, Essex lose the match by 4 wickets. Essex's total of 642 is the highest total in the first innings of a first-class match by the losing side.[4]
