Match Notes

  • Prior and Mushtaq put Sussex on top

    For the second time in the match Matt Prior hauled Sussex out of a hole after the top-order slumped and set the platform for a final-day dart at victory

  • Kent left reeling after Prior ton

    Sussex hadn't quite hit their stride in the early stages of their title defence, but that changed on the second day at Hove as they made full use of the play available on another rain-shortened day to leave Kent reeling on 65 for 6

  • Arafat stars against former team

    It hasn't been the easiest of starts to the season for either Sussex or Kent and it was the visitors who ended the first day at Hove feeling a little better about life as Yasir Arafat took four wickets against his former county
