Naved suffers dislocated shoulder
County Championship D1, Riverside: Durham 311 v Sussex 291 & 85-4 (stumps, day two)

Sussex responded to Naved's injury by taking six wickets for 50 runs
Sussex pace bowler Rana Naved-ul-Hasan suffered a badly dislocated shoulder on day two of the Division One match against Durham at the Riverside.

The Pakistan star hurt his bowling arm while diving to try to stop a boundary.

Naved, 29, was unable to get up and needed oxygen and pain-killers before an ambulance took him to hospital.

"He has a badly dislocated shoulder," said coach Mark Robinson, whose side finished 85-4, a lead of just 60 over Durham, in their second innings.

"He was obviously in a lot of pain - and it was distressing for the players, the amount of pain he was in.

"He was going in and out of consciousness, and it was tough to see one of your own in such discomfort.

"The doctor didn't want to put the dislocation back in, because there is obviously the danger of complicating things in his bowling arm.

"He was obviously in a lot of discomfort - and we were lucky we had a doctor on hand, and our physio did outstandingly well too."

He was going in and out of consciousness, and it was tough to see one of your own in such discomfort.

Sussex coach Mark Robinson

Naved is due to leave the county at the end of the season because only one overseas player will be allowed next season and Sussex have re-signed spinner Mushtaq Ahmed.

But it was news that compounded a poor day for Sussex, whose title hopes were hit by a fabulous maiden century for 20-year-old opener Mark Stoneman.

The opener struck 13 fours in his 232-ball 101 as he combined with Dale Benkenstein (67) to lead Durham to 316 all out - a lead of 25 runs.

Robin Martin-Jenkins, Mushtaq Ahmed and Saqlain Mushtaq shared all 10 wickets between them with Naved off the field.

And Ottis Gibson continued where he left off in the first innings, taking 3-37 to reduce Sussex to 85-4 by stumps, with Chris Adams unbeaten on 31.
