full outside off, Yates flashes an edge that squirms out of Cook's grasp at slip, and that'll be it! Warwickshire win by seven wickets, they've knocked off the champions and will go top of Group One
6.12pm: Plenty of whooping and cheering on the Warwickshire balcony, it's back-to-back wins for them, and another fine chase after they reeled in 333 at Trent Bridge last week. Rob Yates gets the applause of his team-mates, as well as the Essex players, as he heads off unbeaten on 120, a superb knock from the 21-year-old opener. George Dobell's report will be in soon(ish), so stick around for that. It's been another round of top Champo action, and we'll be back for more from Thursday. Thanks, folks. Cheerio!
Cook keeps him honest, defended in front of his stumps
length on the stumps, blocked
short of a length, goes for some pongo on the pull and that flies for four! Scores are level
Walter won't bowl this penultimate over, he wanders off and Sam Cook removes his jumper. Warks almost home and hosed, but there's a bit of a delay... because Essex have taken the new ball!
tip-and-run into the leg side, could be tight... but the throw to the non-striker's end misses!
full again, bunted back
full toss, whacked straight back to Harmer's right
pushed through, clips the inside edge and runs behind him into the leg side
flighted, worked into the leg side for one
tossed up, Lamb dances out and gobbles it up, smashed through mid-off for four! That'll help
We could be going right to the wire here... Harmer continues to the new batsman
pitched up and Lamb punches towards mid-off for one
full and wide, almost on the tramlines, Lamb swipes at it and misses
pitched up and driven into the covers, stopped at the second attempt
No great celebration from the Essex players, probably too late to put the squeeze on now. Matt Lamb, in decent form, heads out with 12 more needed
short ball, Hain swings it away... but picks out long leg! Is there a twist yet?! Hain throws back his head, trudges off in a bit of a funk. Nothing special about the ball, but Hain pulled in the air and Cook stooped for the catch
short and heaved over the leg side out into the deep for another single
pitched up and Hain leans into a drive through the covers for one
Four overs left, 14 runs needed. Close enough to touch...
Here's Neil: "when I want it rain, why can't it rain :-( It's a shame Essex are going to lose, but fair play to Warwickshire, they have batted far more sensibly and haven't thrown their wickets away"
slides this one with a little more pace and it raps Yates on the back leg... heading down
pushed through and driven, Harmer hasn't given up as he hurtles across to field in his follow through
flighted, full on leg stump, popped into the leg side
fired in on off, Hain is nimbly across and works around the corner
