    0.3 big turner, hits top of off! Lawrence lands the first blow and it's a deliciously flighted delivery, doing just enough off the surface to beat Rutherford's crease-bound grope and judder the woodwork! 5/1
    15.3 is this a run-out? Pushed into the covers and there's a direct hit... They check with the third umpire and Wessels is a fraction of an inch short! No one reacted initially, but Essex soon realised when they saw it on the big screen, with Paul Walters' throw beating Wessels' stretch for the line 112/5
    8.2 chipped back, and Harmer stoops to take a brilliant catch! Captain versus captain, chief spinner versus chief spinner, and Harmer comes out on top! The ball just stopped in the surface, hit high on the bat as Moeen looked to work to leg - and he plucked it just above the turf diving forwards 61/2
    8.3 full and hit on the pads - given! David Millns was very quick to give it, though Cox isn't best pleased. He was a long way across and looking to sweep, maybe just in line as the ball pitched and turned. In fact, the replays show he has hit it, which is why Cox was upset 61/3

    12.5 quicker ball, shatters the stumps! Parnell's interrogation at the hands of Harmer is over... Beaten by the ball skidding on as he went back to cut. He had been all at sea against the Essex offie, who is leading from the front again 90/4
    16.5 darted outside off, quick and flat and sliced to backward point! Lawrence picks up a second wicket, simple catch for Delport, standing on the edge of the ring. Still a battle to score out there 119/6
    17.4 back-of-the-hand delivery, scooped high into the leg side - safely taken at cow corner! Delport's bag of tricks does the job in the end, with Harmer holding on to a straightforward chance running in 127/7
    19.6 pace off this time, clattered to leg... and picks out deep midwicket! So Essex end the innings with a wicket, Worcestershire's struggle is over - but do they have enough? 145/9
    19.2 scooped... but straight to short third man! Barnard trying to get clever but the execution let him down and Westley was left with a simple catch moving to his left, even though he seemed to lose it in the floodlight 136/8

    10.3 round the wicket, banged in short, Westley climbs into the pull but he's top-edged it! Who's out there... Pat Brown is sprinting in, out of the night sky... and clings onto a very fine take, slightly over-running it, but keeping his cool in the clutch moment! Huge breakthrough.. 65/3
    2.2 low full toss, and clipped straight to Wessels on the long-on boundary! Moeen pushed the field back specifically for that shot, a bit of a limp clip, as the ball shaped into his pads. A big breakthrough as Essex's strong start fails to materialise... they'll want to be ahead of the game before the Powerplay ends... 9/1
    7.3 reverse sweep, and bowled round his legs! 47/2
    13.1 picks out long-on with a slap down the ground! That's another massive scalp from Moeen! Looked for a moment as though Lawrence had nailed it with a languid followthrough, but a fraction too much elevation allowed Wessels to judge it well, coming over his shoulder, a few feet in from the rope 82/5
    11.5 down the track, attempted smash off a length, and straight to midwicket! Ambitious from Tendo, and he did almost everything right... but Moeen just did him enough in flight to leave him reaching at the crucial point of impact, and that's a very sharp low take! 75/4

    18.4 out come the timbers! Brilliant composure from Brown! It's the knuckleball, from round the wicket, dipping below a wild slog across the line, a feathered under-edge, and a massive breakthrough! 129/6
