HIGHLIGHTS & STUMPS: Sussex rely on Yardy ton04-May-2014
An unbeaten century from Michael Yardy just about gave LV= County Championship Division One leaders Sussex the upper hand against Lancashire on the first day at Emirates Old Trafford.
The 33-year-old left-hander hit 132 not out to provide the backbone of the visitors' 276 for eight.
Yardy, who came in at three, looked as though he might run out of partners before stumps, but a 74-run stand for the eighth wicket with James Anyon ensured Sussex reached the close in some health.
Before that stand the only other significant combination Yardy enjoyed was an 80-run partnership with Chris Nash for the second wicket.
