Pitch Inspectors from the England and Wales Cricket Board will visit the picturesque ground at Horsham after 18 wickets fell on yesterday's opening day of the Second Division County Championship match. Sussex were dismissed for 137 and Worcestershire then struggled to close only four behind on 133 for 8.

Darren Thomas collected the first century of his career at Chelmsford. The Glamorgan left-hander was unbeaten on 119 to help the Welsh county end the first day of the First Division game on 335 for 7. When he arrived, they were in trouble at 128 for 6, but he and Adrian Dale shared a seventh-wicket partnership of 163 in 46 overs.
