    1.5 short ball pitching outside off and Smith throws his bat, with the intention of clearing cover, at it instead carries behind square to third man where Lee Daggett waits patiently at third man, and completes the catch. First wicket down for Essex 13/1
    4.4 short ball on middle and Rutherford gets back to pull this through midwicket, but ends up mistiming it as it balloons to Alex Wakely at midwicket 44/2
    10.3 fuller length on middle and off. Pettini dances down with the intent of hitting it over deep midwicket, but ends up getting a top-edge which flies straight up, with the wicketkeeper getting under it to complete a safe catch. Timely wicket for Northants 79/3
    11.2 short of a length outside off and Bopara heaves this over midwicket as the ball carries to deep midwicket. He hit this out of the middle, but it has travelled higher than it has gone further, as Spriegel waits on the boundary to complete the catch 82/4
    15.4 full and wide again and Ryan, looking to hit this over extra-cover, ends up spooning behind square straight to Richard Levi at third man. Big wicket for Northants as we head into the business end of the innings 114/5
