David Hopps at Essex 199-1 need 255 to beat Somerset
Alastair Cook's 16th boundary has brought up his first Championship hundred of the season. A half-century and century is not the bad way to respond to the loss of the England captaincy.
It came when Jack Leach pulled one down short and Cook whipped him to the square leg boundary. He has been in blissful form, with barely an awkward moment to remember.
A half-century for Tom Westley, too. Essex's game, this.
