Anwar Ali403709.2594110
Tymal Mills402125.25133000
3.4 to Shahzaib Hasan, the bowler wins this contest. Anticipates the batsman's hard hands and throws a slower delivery wide and full, Shahzaib is through the shot before it arrives and his attempt at hitting it is just a feeble push, top edge, and Mills takes it himself. 28/1
19.2 to RS Bopara, short and angled into the batsman, he backs away, uses the pace on his uppish hook shot, but it's straight to fine leg. Sussex gets Essex.. 152/7
Zulfiqar Babar402506.2552000
Thisara Perera403438.5073100
5.3 to CH Gayle, good catch! Good length, pitches on leg and sticks into the pitch, he goes for the flick but it climbs on him and gets him high on the bat. Balloons back to Perera who dives across the pitch to snap it up. 35/2
11.5 to KC Sangakkara, slower ball, back of a length outside off, makes room, waits for it and connects the slash nicely, but there isn't enough pace and he doesn't have enough power to clear the field. Deep point runs in a couple of yards and takes it easily. 79/3
16.6 to Shoaib Malik, low full toss at middle, stays in his crease and gets under this, but the connection isn't good enough and it is lifted straight to deep square leg. 123/5
Hassan Khan201407.0011000
Mohammad Nawaz2027113.5031300
14.3 to KA Pollard, follows him down the leg side again and this time he gets it closer to the big man's body and gets it in on the angle. Pollard is nonchalant again as he lifts this, but it has caught the inside half of his bat and it goes straight to long-on. 97/4

2.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, Pollard holds his finger to his lips and says 'shhhh' after taking this. Back of a length, angles in but goes slightly out after pitching. Shehzad had already positioned himself to flick it across the line. Gets a leading edge and Pollard gobbles it at backward point. 23/1
2.6 to KP Pietersen, has that carried? Sangakkara doesn't know. Goes upstairs for a caught behind. Soft signal is not out. This was good length outside off, KP poked at it without feet and got a big nick. Sangakkara stretched forward and dived to take this. He looked doubtful...but it's out! Replays show he took that cleanly. Big wicket.. 23/2
4.2 to Asad Shafiq, 3 wickets in 4 balls for Sohail! Full outside off, he slices it to try and find the gap between point and a catching backward point, put it goes uppishly and straight to the fielder at point. 30/3
