Daryl Mitchell: Worcestershire captain celebrates his hundred

Sussex collapsed to 154 all out in pursuit of 246 target

Skipper Daryl Mitchell's century laid the foundations for Worcestershire's 91-run win against Sussex in their opening match of the Yorkshire Bank 40.

The Pears skipper hit 107 in his side's 245-9 after they had opted to bat first at Hove.

Mitchell, who was eventually run out to bring an end his 106-ball stay, was well supported by Thilan Samaraweera (41) in a third-wicket stand of 111 and Gareth Andrew added a quick 19 later on to ensure a formidable total.

Seamer Chris Liddle was Sussex's most effective bowler with 3-37 from his eight overs.

Sussex were dismissed for 154 in reply, Worcestershire seamer Jack Shantry finishing with figures of 3-29.

Michael Yardy's 45 was the top score of an innings lasting 31.5 overs and featuring two run outs.
