Rawlins & Sussex Fall to Gloucestershire on Final Ball

Picture Provided Sussex
Graeme van Buuren hit the final ball of the match for six as Gloucestershire squeezed past Delray Rawlins and his Sussex teammates by three wickets to leave both sides with a home tie in the quarter-finals of the Vitality Blast.

His side needed six off the final over but were restricted to four runs off the first five balls by Reece Topley, but van Buuren smashed the last delivery over the longest boundary on the ground at deep mid-wicket to finish unbeaten on 37 from 20 balls.

Gloucestershire looked to have a chase of 164 under control when captain Michael Klinger, fresh from Thursday’s unbeaten hundred against Kent, was helping take his side to 103 for 2 in the 13th over. But Klinger (48) was caught behind off left-arm spinner Rawlins and in his next over Rawlins, who had earlier top scored with 69 in Sussex’s 163 for 8, bowled Ryan Higgins for a duck on his way to figures of 2 for 19 from his four overs.

With Will Beer picking up Jack Taylor for a single, Gloucestershire were 115 for 5 and needed 48 off the last five overs. Ian Cockbain got them closer with 37 off 25 balls before he was caught at long-on in the 18th over.

Gloucestershire took 12 off the penultimate over from Chris Jordan but Topley appeared to have given Sussex a chance until van Buuren swung with mighty effect off the last ball. It was Sussex’s second successive defeat at The 1st Central County Ground, but they had already secured home advantage in next week’s quarter-finals.

Sussex had earlier made 163 for 8 after being put in, a slightly disappointing outcome after they had reached 111 for 2 in the 12th over thanks to a stand of 108 from 60 balls between Luke Wright and Rawlins.

Rawlins was the teams top scorer with 69 off 41 deliveries hitting 8 fours and 2 sixes in his 46 minute stay at the crease.
