3.4 the bowler wins this contest. Anticipates the batsman's hard hands and throws a slower delivery wide and full, Shahzaib is through the shot before it arrives and his attempt at hitting it is just a feeble push, top edge, and Mills takes it himself 28/1
    5.3 good catch! Good length, pitches on leg and sticks into the pitch, he goes for the flick but it climbs on him and gets him high on the bat. Balloons back to Perera who dives across the pitch to snap it up 35/2
    18.3 full and wide outside off, carved to point, throw comes in and he's short of the crease. The bails are off and lit...has he broken the stumps with his hands? Looks like it. But Babar is going anyway. Perera has it cleanly. Run out. 141/6
    11.5 slower ball, back of a length outside off, makes room, waits for it and connects the slash nicely, but there isn't enough pace and he doesn't have enough power to clear the field. Deep point runs in a couple of yards and takes it easily 79/3
    14.3 follows him down the leg side again and this time he gets it closer to the big man's body and gets it in on the angle. Pollard is nonchalant again as he lifts this, but it has caught the inside half of his bat and it goes straight to long-on 97/4
    17 low full toss at middle, stays in his crease and gets under this, but the connection isn't good enough and it is lifted straight to deep square leg 123/5
    19.2 short and angled into the batsman, he backs away, uses the pace on his uppish hook shot, but it's straight to fine leg. Sussex gets Essex. 152/7
    not out
    20 back of a length, slower ball at off stump, gets behind and slogs into the leg side. Comes back for the second but deep midwicket has run in and thrown it nicely for Sarfraz who whips the bails off aggressively 159/7
