19.6 to JC Archer, pumped out to deep midwicket. That is an exceptional finish from Worcestershire's bowlers. A cross-seamer, banged into the pitch and easily pouched.. 157/6

17.2 to LJ Evans, bowled! Barnard looks almost embarrassed by that one - a waist-high full-toss and an attempted paddle over the keeper's head, but the ball is dying as it passes the crease, and so it is not given as a no-ball. Crucial decision, and a crucial breakthrough. 138/5

9.4 to LJ Wright, superb from Moeen! Holds this one back, drags Wright down the pitch, and he's never quite there as he throws his hands through the line and is comprehensively bowled through the gate! Now that is a massive blow.... 77/2
13.6 to DMW Rawlins, this one is straight down long-off's throat! Rawlins advances with intent but gets a fat leading edge for his ambition. Brown steadies himself, completes a solid take, and Worcestershire are rewarded for a disciplined bowling performance, and a brave call from Moeen to take pace off the ball. 121/3
15.3 to D Wiese, bowled through the gate! Lovely bowling from Moeen, a bit of grip from outside off, perfect lack of pace for the wicket and the circumstances, and Wiese drags on via a slender inside edge as he looks to glide through backward point. 131/4

16.5 to RA Whiteley, full toss and Jordan clings onto a brilliant sprawling catch at long-on! But is this a no-ball on height... nope, I think that's okay, and no issues with the take. It's out!. 126/5

6.5 to JM Clarke, a breakthrough! And more spin for Briggs. Nicely tossed up, encourages a drive, it grips and takes the outside edge. Burgess whips off the bails as well, but it was a clearly edge. 61/1
10.1 to BL D'Oliveira, sharp glovework as D'Oliveira is beaten outside off, and Sussex are confident about this. His toe has dragged out of the crease ... and it's not back behind it when the bails come off. 80/3
403228.0064010
7.2 to TC Fell, and another! Sussex are back in it. Fell came down the pitch to drive, but couldn't keep the ball down and send it straight to cover. 62/2
11.5 to MM Ali, battered to mid-off and that's massive! Phil Salt reads it early, dives forward and clings on in his midriff ... oh Mo ... it was all on him. Did he need to go for it so early? Not convinced he did. 90/4
