Sussex capitalised on advantageous conditions to expose Durham's fragility with the bat, taking seven wickets in the second session of their Specsavers County Championship Division Two clash at Emirates Riverside.

Play resumed after lunch and the visitors did not have to wait long to make a breakthrough.

Jofra Archer claimed the wicket of Alex Lees, who edged to Phil Salt at third slip after scoring only two.

Will Smith followed in the next over as Ollie Robinson found the outside edge with Chris Jordan collecting the catch at first slip.

Durham's difficulties in the middle continued when Graham Clark edged a fine delivery from Robinson to Harry Finch.

Resistance arrived from the hosts as Cameron Steel and Michael Richardson dug in, making use of the short boundary towards the County Durham Stand.

However, David Wiese broke their stand of 42 as Finch took his second catch of the day at second slip to remove Richardson, while Steel fell to Chris Jordan in the following over.

Axar Patel continued the procession, falling for eight playing a loose drive to be bowled through the gate by Wiese. Paul Collingwood fell in the same manner to leave his side in trouble at 92-7 at the end of the session.
