Cricket: Rawlins & Sussex In Strong Position

September 12, 2019 | 0 Comments

Delray Rawlins and his Sussex teammates look set to propel themselves right back into the Specsavers County Championship Second Division promotion race after dominating the third day of the match against Gloucestershire at Bristol.

On the brink of a second successive victory, Sussex posted 370 to establish a first-innings lead of 170 and then reduced their opponents to 197/6 by the close.

Gloucestershire lead by just 27 runs with four second-innings wickets in hand, only Chris Dent, who top-scored with 72, summoned meaningful second-innings resistance for Gloucestershire, whose top-order batting was undermined by a series of soft dismissals, James Bracey, Gareth Roderick and Miles Hammond all falling to ill-advised forcing shots.

Hammond succumbed in meek fashion for 10, taking on spinner Rawlins and top-edging a catch to slip.
