HIGHLIGHTS & STUMPS: Magoffin terrorises Somerset again09-Jun-2014
Steve Magoffin and Craig Overton shared the honours on a topsy-turvey second day of Sussex’s LV=County Championship clash with Somerset at Taunton.
Magoffin reduced Somerset to 39 for 5 in reply to Sussex’s first innings score of 214 as he blew the top order away with a terrific opening spell.
But Overton swung the momentum back in Somerset’s favour with a career-best 86 at No.9 as the hosts recovered to post 289 all out, a lead of 75.
Sussex managed to get that down to 49 at the close as openers Chris Nash and James Anyon – stepping in due to an injury to Luke Wells – survived 11 overs with few alarms.
Sussex had made a perfect start to the day after Ed Joyce – resuming on 99 – was finally dismissed having completed his fifth first class century of the season.
