Fall of wickets: 1-60 (Adam Lyth, 16.2 ov), 2-61 (Tom Kohler-Cadmore, 18.5 ov), 3-75 (Joe Root, 22.4 ov), 4-102 (Gary Ballance, 28.3 ov), 5-102 (Harry Brook, 29.4 ov), 6-126 (Dom Bess, 37.4 ov), 7-126 (Jonathan Tattersall, 38.5 ov), 8-140 (Jordan Thompson, 45.5 ov), 9-149 (Steven Patterson, 50.2 ov), 10-150 (David Willey, 50.5 ov)
50.2 to SA Patterson, in the channel, Patterson dabbles at it, nicks through to Brown! That's the ninth, Robinson amongst 'em at last. 149/9
50.5 to DJ Willey, short ball, Willey sends it straight up, that's going to be that for the Yorkshire innings! Looking to turn off his body and he got a leading edge, Robinson gamboling across to his right to complete the dismissal. 150/10
28.3 to GS Ballance, Squared up and edged to slip! Hunt strikes after switching ends - all about the left-armers coming down the hill for Sussex today. Ballance dislodged after making a start. 102/4
38.5 to JA Tattersall, pitched up, Tattersall drives airily - nicks through to Brown! Pump of the fist from Hunt, he has his second and Yorkshire are sliding badly here. 126/7
16.2 to A Lyth, chipped to midwicket! Lyth won't be passing 50 today, a shake of the head as he whips a fullish ball off his pads, but picks out the man on the edge of the square. Garton's first over was loose, but he's made the breakthrough. 60/1
18.5 to T Kohler-Cadmore, full, straight and castled! Kohler-Cadmore looked late getting down on that... maybe done for pace. TKC by far the less fluent Yorkshire opener this morning, and now Garton's got both. 61/2
22.4 to JE Root, full, smashed on the pad in front of leg stump - given! Think that pitched just in line, as Root was shuffling across, some late movement back in from over the wicket. Three quick wickets for the rapid Sussex left-armer. 75/3
45.5 to JA Thompson, . 140/8
29.4 to HC Brook, some turn for Rawlins and that's got through! Brook defending on the back foot, beaten past the outside edge, and off stump is flattened! Five in the session for Sussex, who've roared back after Yorkshire's fifty opening stand. 102/5
37.4 to DM Bess, pushed through, Bess is looking to cut... has he feathered that? Brown takes off the bails for good measure, as the finger goes up. Given caught behind, must have been just a tickle on it. 126/6

36.6 to S van Zyl, Olivier breaks through! Excellent delivery from round the wicket, drew a stroke and the edge was swallowed at slip. 104/2
38.3 to HT Crocombe, pitched up and Crocombe croaks it, nicking through to the keeper! Olivier bellows in delight, and Sussex have lost their nightwatchman, too. 104/3
58.6 to TGR Clark, . 168/4
62.1 to DMW Rawlins, pitched up, Rawlins has a dip... and scoops to Root in the covers! Ambitious shot early in his innings, and well held by the England captain, diving full length to his right. Yorkshire right back in this. 179/6
70.5 to BC Brown, angling in, struck on the knee roll - and given! Patterson chips out another, and that's an important wicket because Brown was going nicely. Didn't look to happy with the decision, was tight on off stump and maybe height. 212/7
70.6 to OE Robinson, pitched up, nibbling back, and the stumps are splattered! Bit of a gap as Robinson attempted to block, and Patto does the business for two in two... He'll be on a hat-trick, though likely after lunch. 212/8
72.5 to JJ Carson, . 212/9
76.3 to GHS Garton, Garton has a slash, thick-edged over the slips... No! Kohler-Cadmore sticks out a paw and holds on! Brilliantly taken one-handed at first slip, and off he jogs to pad up. Sussex all out for a lead of 71. 221/10
59.2 to TJ Haines, Bess gets his first of the season! Big yelp of celebration from the spinner, as he nudges Haines' off stump, 14 short of his hundred. Too close to cut, I think, as the delivery skidded on with the arm. Two in two overs for Yorkshire. 168/5
16.5 to AD Thomason, . 60/1

32.5 to A Lyth, pinned on the front pad, angling in from round the wicket! Robinson punches the air triumphally, Sussex needed that. Lyth is wrenched from the crease after another fifty, Yorkshire two down and the lead just 25. 96/2
88.6 to JA Thompson, gottim, Robinson strikes! Thick-edged and Thomason sticks out a paw, holds on! Seemed to only pick it up right at the last moment, but up went his right hand instinctively. 251/8
90.2 to DM Bess, pinned on the knee roll, up goes the finger! Robinson liked it, so did Ian Blackwell, probably hitting the top of leg on the replay. Nine down, the lead 183 - bea-uti-fully poised. 254/9
29.5 to T Kohler-Cadmore, steps out of his crease, the ball goes on past the outside edge - and Brown completes a simple stumping! Kohler-Cadmore chastises himself, but that's the breakthrough for Sussex. 90/1
39.6 to JE Root, tossed up, Root pokes at it, and he's given caught behind! Carson wheels away in delight, he's got the England captain out cheaply this time... Root didn't look too chuffed, but maybe that was frustration at giving it away. 113/3
57.6 to JA Tattersall, . 157/5
77.6 to GS Ballance, Ballance pads up, and that's the one Sussex wanted! Carson gets his fourth, angled in from round the wicket, looked to be knocking over middle and leg. No hundred for Ballance but he's helped Yorkshire into a decent position. 226/7
103.4 to D Olivier, length ball, spins appreciably, and Olivier is trapped on the crease! That looked pretty plumb, and Carson clenches his fists in celebration of a well-earned five-for - career-best figures for the young offspinner, too. 305/10
44.4 to HC Brook, . 134/4
70.2 to SA Patterson, chopped on! Patterson's resistance at nightwatchman is broken, Garton hurrying him from round the wicket and Yorkshire captain can only divert it down into his pegs. Much-needed breakthrough for Sussex, with the lead up to 123. 194/6

22.1 to TJ Haines, flicks at a leg-side delivery, and it's given caught behind! Yorkshire were convinced, and so was Ian Blackwell. Thompson gets Haines, the top-scorer in Sussex's first innings, straight after tea. 64/2
68.2 to BC Brown, bowled him, middle stump goes cartwheeling back! Thompson crouches, roars and punches the air! Ben Brown is blasted from the crease after a fighting effort, and Yorkshire are on the brink of victory here. 180/9
11.5 to AD Thomason, bowled 'im! Bess strikes, tossed up and spinning inside an expansive mow from Thomason, trying to come down the track. Vital breakthrough for Yorkshire, after the Sussex openers had made a confident start. 45/1
29.6 to TGR Clark, flighted, spin and bounce to hit the splice... and that's snapped up at silly point! Bess gets another, Clark caught in a web, Sussex now three down and getting a touch nervous. 81/3
33.3 to S van Zyl, van Zyl has left a straight one! Arm ball from Bess, angling in from round the wicket and it clips the top of off stump. 86/4
33.4 to DMW Rawlins, two in two! Flighted, this spins to take the edge, and then loops up over the head of second slip, who turns to pouch it comfortably. Deflected up off Tattersall's gloves, maybe knee, too. Bess amongst 'em. 86/5
51.6 to GHS Garton, skidding on, Garton goes to cut, and edges behind! Big breakthrough right before the close, and Bess has his maiden Yorkshire five-for. 136/6
69.5 to HT Crocombe, dragged down, flicked uppishly into the leg side - and David Willey grabs the chance above his head to seal Yorkshire's victory! Bess does get his sixth, a fine effort from him in the fourth innings. 186/10
58.2 to OE Robinson, nip-backer, strikes Robinson on off stump - and up goes Blackwell's finger this time! That'll raise the volume for Yorkshire, who are now three wickets away from victory. Sorry, Sussex fans. 145/7
67.3 to JJ Carson, Root does it! Steered to slip, Carson's a goner... Payback for Root, after he fell to the Sussex offspinner in the Yorkshire second innings. Nice bit of drift on this one, luring Carson into playing away from his body, the young man left slumped over his bat in disappointment. 180/8
