Worcestershire 210 v Sussex 510-5 declared

Sussex have declared with a lead of 300. The declaration, which came during the 117th over, means tea was taken and we’ll have a bumper 45-over session this evening. I’ll be amazed if we get them all in considering the last two evening sessions have been curtailed for bad light.

Worcestershire 210 v Sussex 94-3

Worcestershire 110-6 v Sussex

This update originally started out as a tribute to the patience and technique of Brett D’Oliveira and Joe Clarke, who patched together a partnership of 80 for the third wicket. I was going to talk about Clarke’s classy straight drive when faced with three men in front of the bat: a drive that went as straight as you can go without hitting the stumps at the other end.
