Andre Russell402035.0091010
2.2 to RE Levi, and another! Misses a full toss, heading towards middle and leg. What a start for Nottinghamshire. How did he miss that?. 15/3
16.2 to RK Kleinveldt, slower ball, on a length and Kleinveldt carts it over deep midwicket picks out the fielder! Russell gets wickets on one leg, duped the batsman there, not enough pace to clear the ropes and Northants are five down. 139/5
16.5 to SP Crook, short of a length, full pace this time and Crook is hurried on the pull... picks out deep midwicket again! Hales takes the catch, diving low to his right after coming in off the rope. Russell has a three-for, never mind the calf strain. 141/6
Harry Gurney403418.5092102
1.6 to JJ Cobb, what a strangle! Short, down the leg side, Cobb goes to swing it away and gets a little tickle to the keeper. Umpire was starting to single wide, they realised he'd hit it! Gurney looks slightly embarrassed.. 15/2
Jake Ball402426.00113000
15.5 to BM Duckett, bowled him, timbaaaaaaaaaaah! Duckett is uprooted, trying to sweep a full, fast delivery, Ball hits leg stump and almost explodes in celebration. Big wicket, that. 138/4
18.5 to RI Keogh, and now he's his tossed his wicket away, picks out extra cover on the drive! An excellent diving catch from Mullaney, the low full toss down the trick for Ball. 151/7

Ben Sanderson402125.25121001
0.5 to MJ Lumb, terrific catch at third man! Steven Crook pulls of a good one. Lumb aiming over the leg side, the full ball takes a thick outside edge, flies towards third man who has to run in and dive forward. Super snaffle. Big wicket. 4/1
18.4 to SCJ Broad, goes round the wicket, dug in short, Broad swipes - and top-edges to the keeper!. 147/9
Rory Kleinveldt402426.00102000
1.2 to AD Hales, cleaned him up! Hales loses his off stump. A full delivery, just shapes back enough, Hales leaving a big gate as he goes to dive and the ball finds the gap. What a start for Northants. 5/2
11.3 to AD Russell, dug in, Russell hammers the pull, this is going like a rocket over deep midwicket - until Rob Keogh intercepts it on the dive and takes a brilliant full-pelt catch! A game-changing moment, Russell is outta there! Northants are pinching themselves in delight. 90/5
3.4 to DT Christian, short ball works! Hurries onto Christian who gets cramped for room on the pull, takes the top edge and loops towards Cobb as he runs back from short fine leg. 15/3
Graeme White302819.3362200
7.2 to MH Wessels, goes for the reverse slog sweep and picks out deep point! He middled this, but didn't get it wide of enough of Crook who made good ground around the boundary. 45/4
Steven Crook402837.00133110
12.3 to SR Patel, full on the stumps, 75mph and chipped back... Crook holds it, another superb catch and Notts are six down! Instinctive stuff from Crook, who's taken a couple of good ones in the field, this time he clings on off his own bowling and Patel has to troop back to the dugout. 92/6
14.2 to SJ Mullaney, but that will help Northants, as Mullaney follows up by pulling a half-tracker to deep midwicket! Think he took the pace off again, nothing to work with and there's another smart take in the deep, plunging forward to hold. 107/7
17.6 to CMW Read, full on the stumps, chipped down the ground... and picks out long-on! Big wicket for Northants, Read falls with the target coming back into range!. 141/8
