HIGHLIGHTS & STUMPS: Skipper puts Sussex in command24-Jun-2013
Ed Joyce’s stylish 129 not out took Sussex to 363 for four at stumps on the second day of their LV=County Championship Division One match against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.
The 30th first-class century of the left-hander’s career - and fifth against Notts - came from 138 deliveries with 15 boundaries.
Joyce made an immediate impact after arriving at the crease in just the fifth over of another rain-reduced day.
With play not beginning until mid-afternoon, the Sussex skipper’s innings gained some early impetus as his first seven scoring shots all hit the boundary boards.
The 34-year old found a capable ally in Rory Hamilton-Brown, who equalled his best score of the season with an undefeated 77 in an unbroken fifth-wicket partnership of 158.
