Ravi Bopara made his highest County Championship score of the season and Nick Browne also hit a half-century as Division One leaders Essex edged day one against bottom club Warwickshire.

After opting to bat at sun-baked Chelmsford, Essex were 96-3 after the loss of Alastair Cook and Tom Westley.

Both fell to New Zealand off-spinner Jeetan Patel before Bears old boy Varun Chopra followed cheaply.
