STUMPS: Wright the hero as Sussex pull off the great escape08-Jun-2013
Luke Wright produced his best ever innings as Sussex pulled off one of the greatest escapes in their history at Lord’s.
The England all-rounder scored a career-best 187 to help Sussex recover from a seemingly hopeless position to draw with Middlesex.
Wright put on 159 with Ed Joyce and 101 with Will Beer as Sussex were finally dismissed for 454 after tea at Lord’s.
That gave them a lead of 177 with 20 overs remaining and although Middlesex initially gave it a go they shook hands on a draw on 50 for 3 after eight overs.
