England spinner Monty Panesar starred with the ball as batsmen from both sides struggled on day one of the game between Sussex and Hampshire at Hove.
Panesar took 4-71 from 33 overs as Hampshire could only manage a decidedly modest 206 all out.
Several of their top and middle order played themselves in but no-one could make it out of the 30s - Liam Dawson top-scoring with 38.
But Sussex fared little better, closing the day on 27-2.
