Aron Nijjar helped the Eagles to a comprehensive 54-run victory over Hampshire to record back-to-back wins in the Vitality Blast for the first time this season.
After Tom Westley (51) and Dan Lawrence (49*) led with the bat to set Hampshire a target of 169 to win, the bowler got to work.
It take long as Nijjar picked up the first of three wickets as George Munsey was out to a fantastic catch by Sam Cook off the forth delivery of his opening over in the powerplay.
The 25-year-old ended with figures of 3-22 after taking the wickets of Joe Weatherley and Lewis McManus in his final allotted over.
Aron spoke to Essex Cricket TV after play to reflect on his performance, which also saw his named as Seven Investment Management Player of the Match.
