Sussex Debutant Daniel Ibrahim admits he was shocked when he was told he would be making his debut against Yorkshire.

The 16-year achieved three milestones on day two of their LV=County Championship match at Headingley.

He hit his maiden half-century as Sussex reached 313 all out.

Before following that up by making the breakthrough and picking up his first wicket in first-class cricket as he trapped Tom Kohler-Cadmore lbw.

He also became youngest player to make a fifty in the history of the County Championship.

But Ibrahim revealed his shock when he found out he would be making his debut.

He said: “I was shocked on Sunday when I was told I was playing, but I was so excited.

“There are not many better grounds than Headingley on which to make a debut, and it was just so special to be out there when Ben Brown made his century.

“It was tough to bat against the new ball, but Browny helped me though and took the pressure off me. I found it tough, but I just had to keep battling though and do the best I could.

“It was very special to beat the record (youngest fifty maker in Championship history)."

Sussex began the day 267-5 with Skipper Brown 126 not out alongside Ibrahim, who was unbeaten on 37.

But in the second over the day Brown’s wonderful innings came to an end after he was caught behind off the bowling of Ben Coad for 127.

Ibrahim then hit his maiden half-century off 114 balls, which included seven fours.

But his innings came to an end not long after as he flashed at a delivery from Coad and the ball flew to Harry Brook at third slip meaning he went for 55, leaving Sussex 296-7.

Stuart Meaker came to the crease and added nine before he was bowled by skipper Steven Patterson.

Henry Crocombe’s innings lasted just three balls as he was trapped lbw for 1 by David Wiley.

Jamie Atkins was then run out by Wiley for two as Sussex lost their last three wickets for just 17 and finished 313 all out.

In reply the hosts got off to a flyer with Adam Lyth and Kohler-Cadmore putting on an opening stand of 83.

But Ibrahim made the breakthrough and picked up his first wicket, as he trapped Kohler-Cadmore lbw for 25.

Three overs later Lyth went two runs short of his half-century after he was bowled by Atkins.

Dawid Malan was then given a reprieve, after he was dropped at first slip by Travis Head off Crocombe when he was on 27. The catch burst through the Australian’s hands and went for four.

That proved to be a costly drop as Malan brought up his century in just 153 balls to leave Yorkshire in a commanding position.

The hosts closed the day on 272-2, trailing by 41 runs with eight wickets in hand, heading into the penultimate day of the game.

Malan will resume 103 not out alongside Gary Ballance, who is unbeaten on 74.

Sussex know the morning session will be key for them with the new ball due six overs into the day’s play.
