Tim Wigmore at Sussex 48-0 v Derbyshire
There is a funereal air to Derbyshire in the field this morning. And with good reason, for the pattern of this game already seems well-established. Derbyshire’s 150 has already been put into perspective by the élan with which Sussex’s openers have played. They are scoring at not shy shy of six an over, not that Chris Nash and Ed Joyce have done more than play each delivery on its merits, and cart the loose deliveries - of which there have been far too many - to the boundary. The offside ropes have been peppered remorselessly. Derbyshire were reprieved by the weather when these sides last met, but there seems scant chance of that happening again.
