DURHAM'S Matt Salisbury has struck twice to keep Warwickshire in check in the first session of the day/night Specsavers County Championship Division Two match at Emirates Riverside.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat, facing off against the Dukes pink ball. Chris Rushworth and Salisbury struggled to extract early movement, although they bowled tight lines to prevent Warwickshire making a brisk start.

Salisbury claimed the first wicket of the innings when Will Rhodes played a loose drive on 14 and edged to Tom Latham at second slip. The dismissal brought Ian Bell to the crease on a run of three successive first-class centuries.

Rushworth missed the chance to remove Sibley on six as he put down a return catch. Bell once again looked in good touch as he found the boundary three times early in his knock. However, he paid the price going for the fence once more as he drilled his stroke straight to Cameron Steel at backward point for 23.

Sibley and Jonathan Trott remain at the crease for the visitors, guiding Warwickshire's total to 81-2 at the end of the session.
