Lancs 303-5 in reply to Sussex's 301

Lancs take the lead thanks to an unbeaten 139 from skipper Dane Vilas, new batsman Luke Wood on 11*. Earlier today Vilas and Rob Jones had shared a century partnership as Lancs dominated the Sussex bowling. The only wicket to fall in the last few hours being Rob Jones who threw it away for 58. The young Sussex spinner Jack Carson bowled a load of shite but then showed Dom Bess like quality with another shite ball down leg which was reverse swept straight to a fielder by a disbelieving Jones.

339-5 at the close. Vilas superb, well supported by Davies and Jones, playing as fluently as I've seen him. Jones threw it away with a premeditated reverse sweep off what turned out to be a dreadful full-toss.

One of Bohannon, Croft and Jones will likely be left out when Wells is fit so felt a bit sorry for Bohannon having to face the new ball, while Jones came in when it was a lot easier. Jennings got Lancs off to their traditional start by giving slip a bit of catching practice, edging 4 through them and then a familiar angled bat to nick one into the fielders hands.

Robinson bowled well with the new ball, and Hunt showed why Sussex nicked him from Surrey - raw and promising. Robinson took two big wickets and when you add in his batting exploits (59) - he's been a bit of a star for them. Garton disappointing and Meaker was Meaker. Carson showed no threat, was hammered all over the place but did manage to fluke a wicket. Spinners and April wickets aren't a good mix anyway but Jack looked a little boy lost.

Overall, similar day to yesterday with batting becoming a lot easier when the shine goes off the ball.
