BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Stuart Broad903123.44405000
8.1 to AN Cook, round the wicket, there's that menacing angle back into the left-hander that Broad has spent the past few seasons perfecting. Cook has a nibble outside his eyeline, and Moores swallows the edge!. 23/1
23.5 to PI Walter, round the wicket to the left-hander, inevitably... so full, and angled in, thumps the toes and Walter has nowhere to go but the pavilion. 62/4
Luke Fletcher1672461.50843000
11.6 to T Westley, that's a beauty from Fletcher! Tight line, hitting the seam, jagging round the outside edge of a firm forward push, and nailing the top of off! Can't play those!. 34/2
31.2 to RN ten Doeschate, . 80/5
33.4 to AJA Wheater, swings away late on a full length, Wheater misses his drive and is thumped on the pad... was it doing too much? No, says the umpire. Must have been close to being outside the line on impact, but no doubt he was well beaten. 86/6
39.1 to NLJ Browne, very full length, wide of the left-hander, Browne flings his bat into a drive, and that's a stunning grab at backward point! Ben Slater, diving to his left to remove Essex's last remaining batsman. 99/7
39.4 to S Snater, back of a length, curling away as Snater places his bat in line with off stump, and Fletcher's found the edge for his second of the over! Tom Moores completes the take, and completes a fine five-wicket haul!. 99/8
39.5 to PM Siddle, full and straight, and that's three in the over! Siddle plants his front foot uncertainly, that's thumped the pad on a middle and leg line. Essex are in disarray!. 99/9
Dane Paterson1123202.90515000
Lyndon James53320.60270000
22.2 to DW Lawrence, wide on the crease, speared in towards the base of the stumps, Lawrence plays all around this, and he's pinned plumb in front!. 61/3
40.6 to SR Harmer, nailed on the pad, angled in from outside off, and Essex's collapse is complete! Four for none in 12 deliveries. 99/10

Peter Siddle2247213.2710011000
84.4 to SJ Mullaney, off stump goes cartwheeling! Siddle straightens one on a full length, around the outside edge and into the timbers to end a superb innings. 319/8

85.3 to LJ Fletcher, full and straight, thumped on the pad as Fletcher plays all around it, looking for the angle off the toes that wasn't ever there. That's plumb. 322/9
85.6 to SCJ Broad, backs away, has a swipe, a thick edge to slip, and Snater claims his seventh to end a fun cameo. Nottinghamshire are in a formidable position though. 323/10

Stuart Broad1854612.55876000
21.3 to T Westley, zippy line from Broad, climbing outside off and luring the injudicious poke, a thin nick and Westley goes! Essex are in the mire here now!. 68/2

Lyndon James2065142.551008002
18.1 to AN Cook, round the wicket, nailed on that planted front pad! Cook has been a candidate for that type of dismissal all season, and Nottinghamshire have a big scalp to set them on their way. 63/1
