  Warwickshire innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal IR Bell c Brown b Flintoff 4 9 7 0 0 57.14
2.1 steams in and sends the ball down on a length to Bell, his old team-mate, who tries to go over the top... but he's got more height than distance, this isn't going to clear the fielder running back! Brilliant catch from Brown and Flintoff has a wicket with his first ball!! He's got Shane Warne's scriptwriter working for him, stands with arms outstretched in that familiar pose. Still bigger than Jesus, then 19/1
View dismissal V Chopra* b Croft 30 27 17 2 2 176.47
6.2 pushed through, little bit of grip... and Chopra drags on! A vital wicket for Lancashire, Croft punches the air. Chopra was trying to whip the ball to the leg side, might have turned a fraction and skidded through on to the stumps 64/2
View dismissal WTS Porterfield b Parry 31 29 23 3 1 134.78
9.6 bowled him, Porterfield perishes sweeping! He had a bit of luck earlier in the over but this time misses, exposing his leg stump, maybe a bit of extra bounce and the pole is pegged back 84/3
View dismissal R Clarke b Smith 27 23 27 1 1 100.00
13.3 bowled him, done by a slower ball! Clarke stepped away to leg, was trying to chop through point but completely missed it, straight into off stump 107/4
View dismissal LJ Evans c Prince b Smith 53 34 30 2 4 176.66
18.6 full toss, Evans swats this high towards the midwicket boundary, big bottom-handed scoop... but Prince runs round, slides and settles under it, excellent catch and Evans is on his way for a crackerjack fifty 170/5

View dismissal TC Smith c Evans b Woakes 19 18 16 0 2 118.75
5.3 on a length, maybe seams a touch and Smith gets a leading edge trying to hit to leg... spoons up towards backward point and Evans coolly takes the skier! Woakes has the breakthrough, checking a fizzing start from Lancashire 41/1
View dismissal AG Prince b Rankin 30 32 24 3 0 125.00
8.5 got him, the drag-on slays Prince! Stepped away and tried to flat-bat a short ball, clunked into the bottom edge and straight down to detonate the stumps 62/2
View dismissal UT Khawaja c Evans b Rankin 16 19 17 2 0 94.11
10.1 short ball, pulled straight to deep backward square! Evans takes this one, Lancs are three down! This was hit flat and hard but Evans barely had to move - just concentrate. A big cheer greeted the take and Evans roared back his approval 77/3
View dismissal KR Brown b Woakes 55 38 28 3 4 196.42
17.5 full and straight, Woakes has knocked him over! Superb yorker, under Brown's flailing bat, into the base of off stump 152/7
View dismissal JC Buttler c †Ambrose b Hannon-Dalby 11 11 8 1 0 137.50
12.5 delivers, in every sense, Buttler nicking off! Bowled cross seam, Buttler didn't move at all this time, just tried to flay the ball through the covers, was playing away from his body and got a thin scrape through to Ambrose 102/4
View dismissal SJ Croft b Hannon-Dalby 6 7 4 1 0 150.00
14.2 bowled him, middle stump! Croft stepped away, swung like a kid in the playground - he missed, Hannon-Dalby hit 118/5
View dismissal PJ Horton* c †Ambrose b Patel 1 6 4 0 0 25.00
15.3 slow, spinning in, Horton pulls and misses... Ambrose collects, he and Patel appeal vociferously, and Rob Bailey gives it! Think it might have flicked the thigh pad, don't think there was bat or glove involved, and Horton is livid, openly questioning the decision. He has to go, poor call or not, Lancs sinking here 125/6
View dismissal J Clark c Bell b Hannon-Dalby 10 13 8 0 1 125.00
18.2 low full toss, clubbed towards long-on... where Bell takes a BRILLIANT CATCH! Right on the boundary, judged it superbly, leaped up on to his tippy-toes and pouched it like a dream. Third wicket for Hannon-Dalby, Warks closing in 154/8
