Ali Orr has been told his red-ball game is flourishing – helped by some T20 action.

The 21-year-old opener from Eastbourne scored a second century in as many matches for Sussex.

His unbeaten 106 helped avert any fears of a tricky last afternoon as the county shared a high-scoring draw with Leicestershire at Hove.

Sussex coach Ian Salisbury said: “Ali is very talented in general.

“He is only 21, it’s his third century.

“He has been involved in lots of 100 partnerships.

“I think when he first came on the scene he was more intent on just occupying the crease.

“Now he is really showing intent to score runs.

“It is a subtle difference.

“He is not being more aggressive, it is just more of an intent to play.

“This is the beauty of what I believe we should do going forward, having multi-format players."
