Durham 92 for 7 (Wiese 3-12) v Sussex
Scoring card

Sussex exposed Durham's fragility with bat in his Specsavers County Championship Two championship division in Emirates Riverside, reducing the home side to 92 for 7 at the end of the day.

Durham were inserted after an indisputable release and put on the back of the foot by the impressive bowling of the visitors. David Wiese led the way with figures of 3 by 12, while Ollie Robinson also notched a couple of terrains to continue his impressive term.

The locals have had problems with the bat in Emirates Riverside this season, accumulating only two points in the Campaign. Once again, Jon Lewis's men have everything to cope with Sussex, who pursues the promotion.

Only an overshoot was possible in the morning session due to poor lighting. Cameron Steel successfully negotiated Robinson's spell, although he managed to get out of line by crossing the limits to the limit.

Durham's problems began almost immediately after lunch. Alex Lees drove in a complete installment of Jofra Archer, directing the ball to Phil Salt on the third slip. Will Smith became the first victim of Robinson after the first game back to the pavilion on the next pass, while Graham Clark was undone by a good delivery when Harry Finch took the catch on the second slip.

Steel and Michael Richardson were able to offer a brief resistance, producing an association of 42 races, using the short limit in their favor to try to push back the moment in favor of Durham. However, Wiese made the breakthrough as Richardson dropped by 23 driving poorly in a wider delivery. Steel followed in the next to begin a collapse, allowing Chris Jordan to enter the wicket column.

Axar Patel found the limit twice at the beginning of his innings before being knocked down by Wiese. Captain Paul Collingwood tried to watch the session, but left a direct ball from Wiese to become the seventh gate of the day. The rain prevented any additional play on the first day, to relief the local side in its attempt to save a significant score from its first possibility.
