Wells digs in for Sussex
6:38pm Wednesday 12th September 2012 in Sport
An unbeaten half-century by Luke Wells kept Sussex afloat as they reached 112-5, a lead of 96, in their second innings of the County Championship Division One match against Durham at Chester-le-Street today.
On the ground where he scored his maiden century early last season, the left-hander dug in doggedly and finally found support from wicketkeeper Ben Brown.
After going in at 67-5 in the first innings, when he made an unbeaten 76, Brown arrived at 69-5 second time around.
Although he contributed only 12 to the unbroken stand of 43, he again looked comfortable.
Wells reached 50 off 96 balls by slicing his eighth four through gully, where he scored a lot of his runs, and was unbeaten on 51 at the close.
Chris Nash fell 16 runs short of 1,000 for the season when he was out for nought.
