Jamie Porter11.533142.61553000
2.1 to R Vasconcelos, round the wicket, thumps the front pad dead in front of the stumps. Porter strikes early. 2/1
6.4 to LA Procter, round the wicket, full length, big booming drive, the off stump goes tumbling. Nip off the seam and through the gate. 14/2
26.3 to EN Gay, round the wicket, pans the front pad. Gay's been the best of a sorry bunch, but his demise follows a familiar theme. 59/5
34.5 to JJG Sales, turned inside out for a fat edge to first slip, and that is the end of that. 81/10
Sam Cook1252151.75622100
11.3 to RI Keogh, full, straight, pinned on the front pad. 25/3
27.3 to JJ Cobb, flicking around the front pad, too full for that sort of a liberty... gone!. 60/6
27.5 to TAI Taylor, dangled outside off, a thin snick to the keeper. The wickets keep on tumbling. 60/7
31.5 to AM Rossington, lines up another slog-sweep, and this time it's fuller and straighter. 81/8
33.5 to SC Kerrigan, full, straight, thumps the knee-roll. Seven lbws in the innings, and all of them stone-dead. 81/9
Simon Harmer51901.80251000
Shane Snater612013.33283000
16.1 to SA Zaib, round the wicket, tight line into the front pad, that's not missing either!. 36/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Tom Taylor13.216745.02549000
6.1 to AN Cook, poking loosely outside off, a low edge to third slip, Cook was looking fluent but he's chased one too many. 39/2

43.2 to AJA Wheater, . 170/10

36.6 to S Snater, lift from a good length, a nibble on off stump. Another edge, another wickets. 148/8
40.6 to SJ Cook, dangles the bat, finds the edge, another one bites the dust. Simple pickings. 160/9

Jamie Porter401112.75171000
2.6 to EN Gay, hits the deck outside off, kisses the edge, a simple take and the first-innings resistance is no more!. 3/2
Sam Cook8.242052.40413000
1.2 to R Vasconcelos, full, straight, nailed on the shin! Gone!. 1/1
8.4 to RI Keogh, Wheater's up to the stumps, and a firm poke to the full length appears to flick off his gauntlets as Cook, standing deeper at first slip, makes no mistake on the double deflection. This is a turkey shoot. 21/3
10.3 to SC Kerrigan, outside off, kisses the edge, Cook strikes again!. 23/4
12.5 to JJG Sales, Full, straight, through the gate! Back goes the off stump. 23/5
18.2 to LA Procter, a flash outside off, snicked to the keeper. All over! Ten for Cook, and humiliation for Northants.. 45/10
Simon Harmer32200.66170000
Shane Snater30742.33141000
13.4 to SA Zaib, a wild, sliced drive from round the wicket, a flashing edge to fourth slip and a fine juggling catch to start the second-day rot. 24/6
15.4 to AM Rossington, trims the bails on a good length. Another one gone!. 30/7
15.5 to JJ Cobb, a first-ball wipe across the line, caught off a steepling top-edge at backward point!. 30/8
17.5 to TAI Taylor, a step to the pitch, a slap through the line, holed out to mid-off. Woeful. 41/9
