Or what looks like a drop by Foster but turns out he hasn't hit it - come off the thigh pad
Kyle Coetzer is a clubber. Proper bottom handed clubber.
He bats like I do
Now Levi is clubbing too. He's launched over mid-wicket
Danger Zone blaring out. The DJ is pulling out some classics today.
That's the 50 up in 35 balls
Levi brings up his 51 off 21 balls
This has the makings of a cracker
You'd still rather be in Essex's position with runs on the board but Northants have got themselves in a fantastic position
It's the young left armer Reece Topley returning from the Pav End.
Coetzer c Boparab Topley 18
This is enormously impressive from Richard Levi. Who earlier I termed a bit fat and a bit useless. So yeah - perhaps don't listen to me
Tait has been brought on because the theory is that Cameron White doesn't like it against the quicks
Levi ct Rutherford b Topley 57
It was a full toss above waist height. Bit unlucky there
It's game on now then.
We're having a new ball -this one has a split seam
It's the young left armer Topley to continue.
Bit of a change in pace from Tait to Philips.
Wakely caught and bowled Masters 3
Essex firm favourites now
I'm not a betting woman (that's not true) but Northants have fallen away here. Essex definitely favourites
And as I type that Crook times the nuts off a cover drive although it's cut off at the boundary
That's a ridiculous shot by White. Ridiculously good that it. He hasn't moved and just larrups a pull over mid wicket for 6
So maybe ignore me and my "Essex are favourites".
4 sixes in the last 6 balls has turned the tables a bit
Northants need 36 from 24 balls.
Tim Philips' 4 overs went for 36
And another boundary. Just a 4 this time though
28 needed off 22 balls
this T20 lark is a bit hard to call isn't it
44 in the last 9 balls
That's a gone a like a proverbial tracer bullet
This is utter carnage.
6 off a No ball.
Just 11 to win now.
FOUR through third man and now Northants need just 7 to win.
Essex have choked here
And another. This time through long off
In the bag now.
Essex have been in 4 semi finals and never made the final and they ain't going to here either
Northants 167/3 just 2 to win now
And a top edge over the keeper wins it for NORTHANTS
The covers are on as a precaution before the next semi final
Apparently we are about to have the mascot race.
I thought it was usually between the semis and the final
I'll be here to guide you through it nonetheless
