Phil Salt has revealed how a clash of batting styles is paying dividends for Sussex.

The opener hit 104, his second successive century, to ease his county into a 22-run lead over Glamorgan.

With five wickets in hand and Ben Brown (29 nor our) already set, the hosts have power to take full command of their Specsavers County Championship tussle at Hove.

Salt reached three figures and was out in a hectic final over to conclude his 106-ball innings, which included 12 fours and three sixes.

He is a natural aggressor but the way he combined that with due care during a three-wicket wobble has left Sussex in good shape.

The hard-hitting Welshman has worked hard with coach Mike Yardy, known for a more watchful, patient style during his playing days. It might just be the perfect match.

Salt said: “He has helped me with my processes, what I’m doing when I get ready to face a ball, what I do afterwards, how I’m thinking.

“I think that is why it works so well.

“He was so far one way, I’m so far the other and I think the middle ground we have got is really simple. It’s just the basics.

“When you do the basics well and for a long period of time, you are always going to come out on the right end of it.”

Salt described his late exit as “gutting” but has already doubled his tally of first-class tons with the 122 at Northants last week and now this effort.

Sussex wanted their top order to score runs and their seamers to support Mir Hamza. They got the desired response on both counts.

Hamza (2-49) was a joy to watch from the Sea End. He had Charlie Hemphrey lbw and then probed wide against David Lloyd before bringing one back.

David Wiese (2-42) was on song too as the new-ball pair each took two wickets.

Chris Jordan (3-31) got terrific bounce at times from the Cromwell Road End, notably with a ball which Kieran Carlson could only fend to second slip.

And then there was on-loan Jared Warner (3-35) on his first-class debut.

Spectators love to see sheer pace and they took to the Yorkshireman immediately, even during a wayward first spell.

He came back from the top end to tidy up the tail, something which has been easier said than done for Sussex at times.

Glamorgan opener Nick Selman carried his bat for 76 from 156 balls.

Luke Wells, who was caught at square leg for 30, and Harry Finch got starts for Sussex.

Finch, who made 31, will be mad that he was bowled looking to pull a long-hop from spinner Marnus Labuschagne, who then beat Stiaan Van Zyl to give him wickets with his first two balls.
