One-Day Cup: Warwickshire (283-7) beat Essex (2113 all out) by 70 runs

Essex crashed out of the One-Day Cup quarter-finals after a 70-run loss to Warwickshire, despite 50 from Ryan ten Doeschate.

The Eagles lost the toss at Edgbaston and were put into the field by the Bears who were keen to make the most of good conditions.

After the opening bowlers failed to get any wickets, Graham Napier was introduced to the attack in the eighth over.

The veteran made an immediate impact, bowling Sam Hain for 18 with the hosts 42-1 in their innings.

David Masters then took a key wicket for Essex, removing Ian Bell for a duck after the former England batsman edged the ball to James Foster.

From there, however, the visitors struggled as Jonathan Trott and Tim Ambrose put on over 100 for the third wicket.

That was until Napier took his second wicket off the day as Ambrose was caught by Ravi Bopara for 60.

Trott, though,remained a thorn in Eagles’ side and eventually reached three figures to take the help the hosts past 200.

However, he too was in the pavilion after being stumped by James Foster for 101 following a delivery by Ashar Zaidi.

Chris Woakes, so impressive in Test matches for England this summer, was next man to go as he went for four off the bowling of ten Doeschate.

The onslaught continued with Napier claiming his third wicket of the match to restrict Bears to 235-6 as Rikki Clarke went for a duck.

Ten Doeschate continue to impress for Essex to dismiss Ateeq Javid with Warwickshire 257-7 with just two overs to go.

However, the hosts put the foot down in their final 12 deliveries to add another 26 runs for the loss of no wickets, setting Essex 284 to win.

The visitors started well with Tom Westley and Nick Browne putting on 75 for the first wicket before the latter was trapped leg before wicket by Javid for 39.

Jesse Ryder then fell shortly after coming to the crease, bowled by Josh Poysden for just five.

Ravi Bopara to Patel and Jaik Mickleburgh fell in quick succession before Westley passed his 50 with the visitors floundering on 112-4 after 23 overs.

Zaidi then departed for seven after driving a full toss into the hands of Bell at mid-on off the bowling of Javid, with Essex 120-5.

Westley was next man out with his innings ending on 73 after being trapped leg before by Poysden with the visitors 134-6, from which they staged a mini-recovery.

However, when Foster went for 14, the tail was exposed and Eagles looked to be in real trouble.

Napier (17) chopped his ball onto his stumps before Masters went for a duck to leave Essex 204-9 and staring down the barrel.

And they were put of their misery when ten Doeschate was dismissed for exactly 50, with Jamie Porter unbeaten on nought at the other end with Essex 213 all out.
