STUMPS: Day Four eventually washed out at Hove14-Sep-2013
Yorkshire's hopes of closing the gap on LV=County Championship Division One leaders Durham were frustrated by rain at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground.
After the White Rose sent down 30 overs of generous bowling to set up a run chase against Sussex, their pursuit of a target of 300 in 64 overs ended after 20 overs following a torrential downpour.
The visitors were 81 for two when the players shook hands and their failure to force a result, allied to Durham's win over Derbyshire, means a 27.5-point deficit with two games to play.
Durham could now clinch the title by winning at home to Nottinghamshire next week. Yorkshire would have to beat both Middlesex and Surrey convincingly and hope that Durham slip up.
