A persistent Yorkshire attack made Sussex work hard for their runs, with opener Luke Wells holding the batting together with a patient 74 on the opening day of the First Division match at Arundel.

Sussex’s decision to bat first looked the right one at lunch when they were 108 for one but Yorkshire ripped through the heart of their batting in the afternoon when they took six wickets, including Wells, who was dismissed after nearly four hours.

Susssex were 300 for nine at stumps.

Yorkshire’s quartet stuck to their task manfully, none more so than Tim Bresnan who picked up three wickets.
