Salt century has Glamorgan on the back foot.
Byline: OPENER Phil Salt scored COUNTY CRICKET
his second successive century to put Sussex in a good position on day one of their Specsavers County Championship Division Two match against Glamorgan at Hove.
Having made 122 against Northamptonshire last week, Welsh-born Salt reached the fourth hundred of his career in the final over of the day when he collected his 12th boundary courtesy of a bad mis-field by Charlie Hemphrey at mid-off.
But two balls later Salt lost concentration and was caught behind cutting at Dan Douthwaite for 103, made off 105 balls with 12 fours and three sixes. Sussex were 208 for 5 at stumps, a lead of 22.
Salt wasn't the only opener to prosper with Glamorgan's Nick Selman carrying his bat for the second time in his career.
The 23-year-old was left unbeaten on 79 when Glamorgan were dismissed for 186 in 55.2 overs.
Sussex's seamers dominated apart from a period either side of lunch when Selman and Graham Wagg added 72 in 22 overs for the seventh wicket.
Wagg contributed 44 before he was caught behind to give Chris Jordan his third success.
Jared Warner polished off the tail to finish with 3 for 35 leaving Selman, who passed 2,000 first-class runs, high and dry on 76 not out from 156 balls with 11 fours.
