Sam Robson piles on career-best 253 as Middlesex tick off the records against Sussex


Middlesex post highest total in their history, Sussex without loss in reply but still 573 adrift

Sussex 103 for 0 (Haines 73*, Orr 17*) trail Middlesex 676 for 5 dec (Robson 253, Stoneman 174, White 110*, Andersson 88) by 573 runs

Sam Robson scored a career-best 253 and Robbie White his second successive century as Middlesex piled up the highest total in their history.

White was unbeaten on 110 when Middlesex declared on 676 for 5 on day two of their LV = Insurance County Championship match at Hove.

It was the sixth-biggest total Sussex have conceded in their history and highest for 21 years, but openers Tom Haines and Ali Orr enjoyed benign conditions too, taking their side to 103 without loss at stumps.

Haines passed fifty for the seventh time this season and at stumps he was unbeaten on 73, which included 11 fours, with Orr 17 not out.
