Wells stars again as Sussex victorious
An unbeaten 90 from in-form Luke Wells guided Sussex to a five-wicket win over Leicestershire at Grace Road on Monday, our second successive win in the Specsavers County Championship. Wells, who was 27 not out overnight, received solid support from Stiaan van Zyl in compiling a partnership of 70 for the fourth wicket. Neither batsman took unnecessary risks, though Wells did go to his half-century in style, hitting off-spinner Colin Ackermann for a beautifully-timed straight six.
