Hampshire v Essex

And if anyone was in any doubt about how much this competition means to its competitors, then they needed only to witness Wasim Akram's bat-flinging tantrum after narrowly failing to beat Essex. Wasim had lamped 20 runs off 11 balls to resuscitate Hampshire's run-chase, but he and Simon Katich could not quite manage the 12 runs needed from Jon Dakin's final over. Essex's sub-par total of 155 for 6 had been built on a handy 49 from Andy Flower, and a promising 32 from Essex's 18-year-old star-in-the-making, Mark Pettini.
