STUMPS: Jordan takes five as Sussex eek out Somerset28-Apr-2014
Chris Jordan took five wickets for Sussex as they bowled out Somerset for 372 on Day Two of the LV=County Championship clash at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Hove.
Resuming on 83 for 3 this morning after yesterday’s rain-affected day, Somerset were buoyed by the form of skipper Marcus Trescothick who played beautifully for his 116 before he was bowled by Steve Magoffin.
He was well supported by Alviro Petersen and the pair put on 139 before the latter was well stumped by Ben Brown to give Ashar Zaidi his only wicket of the innings. The tenth wicket pair of Johann Myburgh (37 not out) and Lewis Gregory (47) also frustrated Sussex as they put on 75 before Gregory became Jordan’s fifth victim of the innings.
Sussex faced 11 overs before the close and lost the wicket of Ed Joyce as they closed on 25 for 1.
