HIGHLIGHTS & STUMPS: Warwickshire fight back against Sussex


Stand-in Warwickshire captain Ian Bell led from the front with a century to underpin the home fightback on Day Two of the LV=County Championship Division One match against Sussex at Edgbaston.

Bell ended the day unbeaten on 144 and shared stands of 52 with Chris Woakes, 132 with Rikki Clarke and then an unbroken 69 alongside Jeetan Patel in a close-of-play 387 for seven.

Deputising for the injured Jim Troughton, Bell made a duck in Warwickshire's first-innings 87 all out but - as well as reviving his county - demonstrated some heartening early-season form to England's supporters.

Chris Jordan (pictured) was the pick of the Sussex bowlers taking 3 for 98 whilst Steve Magoffin, Jimmy Anyon and Jon Lewis were all amongst the wickets.
