14b to Z Crawley, A torturous innings comes to an end! Might be one of the worst knocks of the competition. Crawley tries to slog sweep - Mal Loye style - but gloves onto his pad, and the ball balloons up for a simple take to Joe Clarke down the leg side. 5/1
22b to MS Wade, Wade goes! Just as this looked like being the start of a salvo for Spirit, Wade skims another scoop through to the keeper. 16/3
16b to DW Lawrence, The captain's gone! Dan Lawrence takes a step down and goes to drive inside-out over cover but the length isn't there and cover has a routine catch at head height. 5/2
28b to AM Rossington, Rossington goes, Fire raging! Hoik across the line, trying to force a ball outside off stump through the leg side. Abell takes a smart swirling catch running back from cover. 19/4
77b to MJJ Critchley, What a catch! Short, heaved towards midwicket, but not all the way. Glenn Phillips charges across and puts in a dive to take the catch a few inches from the ground.. 74/6
95b to LA Dawson, Lockie gets the last laugh! Goes for the stumps again, this time nailing the yorker and burning a hole through middle and off stump. 102/7
53b to DJ Mitchell, Gone! Short ball, hit to the long side with the wind blowing the other way... and Willey takes a catch about 20 yards in from the boundary sponge. 43/5
100b to NT Ellis, Brilliant finish! Slower, slightly fuller... Ellis goes to heave away to the leg side but misses completely and loses his off stump. 109/9

Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Stephen Eskinazi, 9b), 2-15 (Joe Clarke, 17b), 3-15 (Luke Wells, 19b), 4-69 (Jonny Bairstow, 69b) • DRS
9b to SS Eskinazi, Gone! More advancing and another skier... this time taken comfortably to Daryll Mitchell at cover. 12/1
17b to JM Clarke, Gorgeous! Test match dismissal, that. Curving in, enticing the straight drive, shape away catching a sliver of an edge through to the keeper. Beauty. 15/2
19b to LWP Wells, Another! Perfect to the leftie... fifth stump line, seam across catching an edge through to Rossington. This is different gravy from DW. 15/3
69b to JM Bairstow, Gone!. 69/4
