Glamorgan v Sussex, Championship Div 2, Cardiff, 23-26/08/16

Glamorgan went down to a 2 wicket defeat late on Day 4, as Sussex succesfully chased down 233 runs despite being 156/7 at one stage.

Glamorgan were in the box seat going into the last day leading by 118 runs with 8 wickets in the hut. Sadly, their batting before lunch was rather reckless and meant them setting Sussex a less challenging target than one looked likely.

Nonetheless, some excellent bowling from Timm van der Gugten put the home side as favourites as the day wore on but it was some resistance from the Sussex lower order notable Ben Brown, Danny Briggs and George Garton which saw the seasiders home.
