LONDON, England, CMC – Veteran left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul failed for the first time this season as his Derbyshire crashed to an innings and 64-run defeat to Worcestershire in the County Championship on Wednesday.

Behind by 213 on first innings, Derbyshire folded for a paltry 149 all out in their second innings at New Road, with the West Indies stalwart managing just four.

In his previous innings, Chanderpaul had scored 91, 75 not out, 52, 82 and 32.

This time, however, he failed to bolster Derbyshire and was one of two early wickets to fall to 21-year-old seamer Charles Morris (2-25), as the visitors slipped to 29 for three.

Only captain Wayne Madsen with 56 offered any real resistance as Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal ripped through the middle order with four for 40.

At Hove, Barbados and England all-rounder Chris Jordan also failed to save Sussex as they went under by an innings and 11 runs early on the final day Wednesday.

Resuming the day on six with Sussex on 163 for six and needing a further 68 to avoid an innings loss, Jordan added just one before departing at 166 for seven.

Sussex had followed on by 230 runs.
