The 40 ball century by Willey, the fastest this season, has seen Northamptonshire through. When they were bowling they strode back into the game after the Nash - Jayawardene partnership. Willey took three wickets. Jordan coming back after an injury lay-off looked rusty while batting and bowling.

David Willey is the Man of the match. Do join us for the game between Essex and Warwickshire tomorrow. Till then, good night from all of us here
