Laxman misses ton against Sussex on day 2

India's bowlers took cue from the top order batsmen, striking telling blows to reduce English County Champions Sussex to 146 for 5 in their first innings on the second day of the warm-up match in Hove on Sunday.
After V V S Laxman top-scored with a sparkling innings of 95 to give the Indians an impressive total of 388 for 7 declared, the bowlers produced a clinical display to drive a wedge through the Sussex top order.
At close, wicketkeeper-batsman Andy Hodd was batting on 21 with Robert Martin-Jenkins yet to open his account at the crease and Sussex still needing 93 more to avoid the follow-on.

India reach 281 for 3 at stumps on day 1

The Indians made an ideal start to their three-month long tour of England with several top-order batsmen spending valuable time in the middle on the first day against Sussex at Hove as the Indians reached 281 for 3 at stumps on day 1.
A few spots in the Test team are still up for grabs and the Indians wanted to use this match and the next warm-up game to identify their best XI before the first Test against England on July 19. India captain Rahul Dravid won the toss and without any hesitation elected to bat first.
Karthik had scored a century in his last Test innings at Mirpur and he continued his form with a watchful 76. Jaffer failed after a watchful start and Gambhir did his claim to a Test opening spot no harm by scoring an unusually patient 67.
They came together towards the end of the first session and added 129 runs for the second wicket. Dravid batted fluently towards the end of the day during his 57 while Laxman also played a determined innings, punctuated with his delightful wristwork, and staked his claim for the No.5 spot in the Test side. It had been raining at Hove in the past few days and conditions were windy at the start, with the sun playing hide and seek behind the clouds.
The match got off to a delayed start as Sussex were involved in a Twenty20 match late on Friday evening. Pakistan off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq made his Sussex first-class debut.

Full strength team likely for Sussex match

Fresh from their one-day cricket series triumph over the South Africans in Ireland, India will launch their gruelling tour of England with a four-day warm-up game against County champions Sussex at Hove.
The two teams, however, will keep one eye on the quiky weather as it has been raining regularly here for the last few days. With hardly any cricket played for about a week since their series win against South Africa, the Indians will be looking forward to field their best combination in the two warm-up games leading up to the first Test at the Lord's on July 19.
Accordingly, Test regulars Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman and Wasim Jaffer are almost certain to make the cut for the final eleven. Among the batsmen, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, Sourav Ganguly and Dinesh Kaarthick will try to get rid of the rust and be in top shape ahead of the Test series.
The Indian top order did well to get some runs under the belt against a decent South African attack in the Future Cup series and would be keen on continuing with that impressive form. In bowling department, S. Sreesanth has fully recovered from a bout of flu, that ruled him out of the one-day series in Ireland, and he will be sharing the new ball with Zaheer Khan. Captain Rahul Dravid will also be interested to see new pace inclusion Ranadeb Bose perform in a match situation. With the presence of Pakistan players Mushtaq Ahmed, Saqlain Mushtaq and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan in the rival ranks, the Indians can certainly expect a bit more spice added to the contest.
Led by the 37-year old Chris Adams, who played five Tests for England, Sussex has banked on the guiles of Mushtaq to break the title jinx in 2003 before winning it again last year. In each season, Mushtaq finished with 103 and 102 wickets respectively. Sussex has been well served by former Zimbabwe batsman Murray Goodwin and Richard Montogerie, both of whom have been in fine form. The 34-year old Goodwin played 17 Tests for Zimbabwe before moving to Australia - where he grew up - in 2000. Michael Yardy, Andy Hodd and Carl Hopkinson are the others in the line-up that also includes two allrounders in Luke Wright and Robin Martin-Jenkins. Chris Liddle, Jason Lewry and James Kirtley form a decent pace attack for the hosts. India team (from): Rahul Dravid (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar's Site, Sourav Ganguly, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, VVS Laxman, Dinesh Kaarthick, Ramesh Powar, S. Sreesanth, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir, R.P. Singh, Wasim Jaffer, Anil Kumble, Ranadeb Bose and Ishant Sharma.
