Rory Kleinveldt302909.6665000
David Willey402125.25102000
14.1 to JC Buttler, fullish outside off, Buttler tries to hit over extra cover... and picks out the fielder! It was a cutter from Willey, shrewdly bowled and Buttler was not in control, through the shot early and the catch was well held running in off the boundary. 123/3
14.4 to AG Prince, two in the over for Willey as Prince steers a bouncer straight to backward point! Not sure about the shot, no real venom in it and the ball looped to the fielder... Possibly a slower ball, it was dug in very short and Prince completely fluffed it. 125/4
Olly Stone2020010.0032021
Graeme White2031015.5011300
Shahid Afridi401433.50110000
9.4 to KR Brown, down the leg side, Duckett appeals for caught behind, Brown walks out of his crease... and is promptly stumped! What was Brown thinking? If he didn't hit it, the ball should probably have been called wide, but he was certainly out of his ground as Duckett gently popped off the bails. Ah, seems like he did hit it, as caught behind is the decision. 78/2
15.1 to JP Faulkner, pushed through outside off, Faulkner drives on the up and picks out extra cover! Lancashire have lost three in seven balls and Northants have grabbed them by the scruff. 130/5
15.2 to LS Livingstone, bowled him, brilliant googly from Afridi! The arms points skywards, "Boom Boom" has detonated Livingstone's stumps with one that span back through the gate - and for the second time in the day a Northants bowler is on a hat-trick. 130/6
Josh Cobb201618.0021000
8.6 to AL Davies, bowled him, under the swing of the bat to shudder off stump! Cobb fired this in a bit further up, Davies came forward and pretty much yorked himself... That's the breakthrough and the man Northants will have wanted. 77/1

Steven Croft302418.0041100
11.5 to SP Crook, slow, out the front of the hand, Crook launches the ball high into the leg side... and straight to the man on the boundary! Another falls, the Lancs spin trap sucks in another victim. 81/4
Gavin Griffiths302327.6674000
17.3 to Shahid Afridi, slower ball, slogged into the deep - gone, picks out the man! Afridi falls, by the sword, naturally, flat-batting the ball to the fielder at deep cover. Lancs closing in. 133/5
19.3 to RK Kleinveldt, wide, length delivery... and plopped into the hands of long-off! Kleinveldt falls, reaching for the ball, searching for the big hit, safely caught. 148/6
George Edwards3034011.3344110
James Faulkner402526.25112110
3.6 to RE Levi, got him, Levi sends a drive straight to mid-off! Faulkner chips out the burly opener, who was looking to hit over the top and simply mistimed it to the fielder. 32/1
5.3 to DJ Willey, gottim, the big wicket! Willey pulls, gets a top edge and Lilley takes the catch! Faulkner has his second, dug the ball in and it went high towards midwicket as Willey tried to hit a homer, pulling from outside off and it was well held backpedalling from the edge of the circle. 45/2
Stephen Parry402315.7572000
10.1 to BM Duckett, swings across the line, struck on the back pad - and given! Duckett doesn't appear too pleased with that but it looks like it was going on to hit leg stump. Parry strikes and ends a handy cameo. 74/3
