Mason Crane said he is delighted to be back at Sussex as they enjoyed their best day yet of a tough season.

He bagged two late Durham wickets on his debut for his home county after signing a month-long loan deal from Hampshire.

His victims included top-scorer Liam Trevaskis, for 88, thanks to a stunning Ali Orr catch.

Tom Clark took 3-21 and on-loan seamer Aaron Beard 3-51 on debut as the county’s new-look attack bowled out Durham for just 223 on a great pitch at Hove.

Crane then went in as nightwatchman and helped Sussex close on 82-1, of which skipper Tom Haines made 54.

Shoreham-born Crane said: “I’m excited to be here and get a few games under my belt.

"I’ve done my fair share of not playing and drinks-carrying in my career, especially during the winter, so it’s important for me to be playing regularly.

“You can improve in the nets but you only get better if you can put it into practice.

"It was nice to pick up a couple of wickets and as a team I thought we bowled really well as a team.

"It's a pretty decent wicket as I think Tom Haines and Ali Orr showed at the end.

"We feel we bowled them out for an under-par score and hopefully we can cash in."

Trevaskis was not impressed. He said: "It was good to get a score and it was frustrating to get out.

"No offence to Mason Crane but it wasn't the best ball and I thought it was going for four, but it was a decent catch."
