Friends Provident t20 - 1st semi final

Hampshire v Essex

Hampshire won by 6 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

8.5

Christian to Cook, OUT, that ball didn't deserve a wicket so you can imagine how Cook's feeling, wide down the leg side with the fine leg up, he ends up tamely chipping it to that fielder, ends a promising innings

AN Cook c Briggs b Christian 38 (36m 22b 3x4 2x6) SR: 172.72

Essex 79/1   ML Pettini 38* (31b 6x4)   DT Christian 1.5-0-26-1

9.6

Briggs to Bopara, OUT, big edge and that was obvious! The ball skids through outside off and doesn't turn, Bopara tries to cut but it takes the edge, Bates knew it immediately

RS Bopara c †Bates b Briggs 2 (2m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Essex 84/2   ML Pettini 41* (33b 6x4)   DR Briggs 2-0-13-1

11.3

Briggs to ten Doeschate, OUT, ten Doeschate fails to clear the rope! Comes down the track and looks to loft over the bowler's head but doesn't get enough elevation, long-on gets under it

RN ten Doeschate c Vince b Briggs 1 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Essex 96/3   ML Pettini 51* (38b 7x4)   DR Briggs 2.3-0-20-2

13.2

Briggs to Pettini, OUT, Briggs takes three for the road! He fires this fuller and quicker, almost on the blockhole and Pettini shapes to slog and the ball goes straight through and hits middle and off

ML Pettini b Briggs 55 (55m 43b 7x4 0x6) SR: 127.90

Essex 105/4   DJ Bravo 4* (5b)   DR Briggs 3.2-0-24-3

14.1

Christian to Bravo, 1 run, OUT, Wood strikes wood! Bravo spooned it fast over the bowler's head and he drops the catch, the ball is deflected to mid-off and Bravo takes the first run slowly, he seems content with the single but walker hurries him for the second, Wood fires the ball to the batsman's end there's a direct hit and Bravo is short, third umpire takes a look

DJ Bravo run out 5 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Essex 111/5   * (b)   DT Christian 2.1-0-27-1

17.1

Christian to Foster, OUT, Foster tries to get across his stumps and hit it straight I'd presume but he mistimed it and ended up slashing, the top edge lands down Cork's throat at extra cover

JS Foster c Cork b Christian 15 (8m 11b 3x4 0x6) SR: 136.36

Essex 135/6   MJ Walker 9* (10b)   DT Christian 3.1-0-33-2

19.5

Wood to Walker, OUT, fails to give a low full toss the treatment it deserved, Walker mistimes it and Christian does well to fall forward at long-on and take the catch

MJ Walker c Christian b Wood 18 (25m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Essex 154/7   GW Flower 8* (7b)   CP Wood 3.5-0-40-1
