David Hopps at Warwickshire 171-5 v Essex
The pressure is building on Warwickshire as this Chelmsford pitch shows increasing amounts of turn for Simon Harmer and occasional steep bounce for the pace bowlers.
Harmer is bowling to a semi circle of increasingly vociferous close fielders and balls are flying close to then at regular intervals, off body, off pad, maybe off bat and pad, although as none have gone to hand nobody on the outer can be entirely sure.
What is certain is that Sam Hain has departed to a cracking catch to his right by James Foster. The ball before another edge off Paul Walter had bisected Fostr and his first slip, Alastair Cook. Foster received a second invitation to launch hmself and this time was not shy about it.
Harmer had one of the three wickets today - Ian Bell jabbing a ball tat turned back into him to slip. He looks well positioned for more.
The follow-on figure of 391 looks a long way away.
