Round-up: Collapse puts Sussex in the mire
Champions three times in the past seven years, Sussex look destined for the Second Division after a dramatic collapse saw them hurtle to a 156-run defeat to Yorkshire on Saturday.

David Wainwright took 4 for 12, meanwhile, as Sussex slumped to 83 all out.
