Warwickshire 56-5 v Essex
Essex steamrollered Warwickshire's top order to continue their charge towards the title on the third morning of the Specsavers County Championship match at Edgbaston.
Trailing by 168 on first innings, the home side were 56 for five when rain sent the players in for an early lunch.
After resuming this morning on nine without loss Warwickshire lurched to 25 for four within another ten overs.
It took Jamie Porter just nine balls to remove both openers as Dominic Sibley edged to first slip and Sam Hain fell lbw.
Former England pair Jonathan Trott and Ian Bell were then uprooted by Sam Cook, who induced the former to play on and had the latter caught behind, inside-edging a superb delivery.
Chris Woakes then turned spinner Simon Harmer's tenth ball to leg slip before a shower of rain arrived to delay Essex's celebrations.
