UPDATE: Sussex on course for victory

16-Jun-2017

Spectators enjoyed another good session for Sussex at Arundel

Sussex are on course to beat South Africa A after forcing the tourists to follow-on on the third day at Arundel.

Leg-spinner Will Beer took three of the last four first-innings wickets to fall in a spell of 3 for 15 this morning as South Africa A, who were 151 for 6 overnight, were dismissed for 185.

Beer finished with career-best List A figures of 6 for 29 after adding Dane Piedt, Dane Paterson and Junior Dala to his earlier second-day victims.

Danny Briggs picked up the other wicket to fall this morning when he trapped Rono Second lbw for 31.

South Africa A went in again trailing by 273 and soon lost two wickets.

Abe Sakande struck with his first ball, taking an excellent return catch to dismiss Tembo Bavuma, who made 63 in the first innings, for a first-ball duck.

Sakande then had Jason Smith well caught at mid-wicket by Phil Salt for 3.

South Africa A had reached 23 for 2 at lunch, still 250 behind.
