Having won two out of three of their matches so far, the Sharks are in a healthy third spot in the South Group table following the home win against Gloucestershire and an impressive five-run victory over Somerset at Taunton last Friday.

A second successive Man of the Match award for Will Beer, as he claimed figures of 3 for 23, helped Sussex to seal victory after Luke Wright (49), Chris Jordan (37) and Mahela Jayawardena (36) had all starred with the bat.
