David Hopps at Essex 384-5 v Warwickshire
James Foster is only 15 short of a hundred, but if he gets there it will come accompanied by a headache. He has been struck on the helmet by Boyd Rankin. He played it pretty well, in theory, crouching and staying inside the line, but it stayed low and followed him. He carried on after a delay.
Rankin has responded with three catchers in the deep on the leg side and about 10mph on his pace as he fires in more short ones.
