View dismissal RE Levi c Rutherford b Topley 57 41 35 4 4 162.85
10.1 Levi is gone with a glance and two at the square leg umpire, it was a high full toss from round the stumps, and a surprised Levi can only shovel it weakly for long on to run in and take the catch, very close to being above waist height, but not close enough 83/2
View dismissal KJ Coetzer c Bopara b Topley 18 32 19 2 0 94.73
8.2 straight to mid off, he got far across the stumps, outside off in fact, trying to use the angle probably, but ends up slamming a full delivery to the fielder, simple take 74/1

12.2 uh oh, Northants are stalling now, he's tried to turn a length ball off the pad to leg and has ended up getting a leading edge to the bowler 93/3
