Sussex completed their first Championship double over Warwickshire for 54 years with a comprehensive victory at Horsham.

Ed Joyce’s men wrapped up a 226-run win three balls after tea as the Bears were dismissed for just 99.

The result earned Sussex 23 points and lifted them to fifth place in division one of the Championship, 35 points above the relegation zone.

Warwickshire lost their last four wickets in just six balls without scoring either side of tea as Sussex bowled out the visitors with 35 overs to spare.

James Tredwell led the way with fine figures of 4-7 after an opening blast of three wickets from Chris Jordan (3-38) put Warwickshire immediately on the back foot.

Only Tim Ambrose offered any resistance as he batted for more than two and a half hours to make 56 but Warwickshire’s hopes of survival ended when he was bowled through the gate by Chris Nash just before tea.

The end came just after 4pm in comical fashion which summed up Warwickshire batting in the second innings, Keith Barker being run out to become one of five ducks for the Bears.

Hold on, I thought we were rubbish this year? It seems reports of our demise and certain relegation were somewhat premature.

Excellent bowling performance from the boys today - a great result again against a very decent team. Two of Warwickshire's lowest scores this season have come against us.

Too true. Add into the mix the away washout at Middlesex, and Sangakkara playing I think his only match for Durham against us, Jordan being away on test duty, and we don't look anywhere near as bad as some on here have been painting us.
Good wishes to Matt Prior BTW, some time for treatment to his injuries and away from the baying media should do him good.

Absolutely excellent bowling performance today. Many of us have given the team a lot of stick lately and most of it was deserved but we played well throughout this match. We were on top from the first day and we finished the match off superbly today. I imagine Jordan has bowled himself into the Test team so I doubt whether we'll see him again until the last week or so of the season.

Horsham's a lovely place to watch cricket and it seems to be a good ground for us. But what a change today. Yesterday evening Joyce and Cachopa were smacking the ball around and up to the close of play last night there had been 950 runs scored and only 24 wickets lost - almost 40 runs per wicket. Today we scored 41-5 and Warwicks were all out for 99 so today 15 wickets fell for only 140 runs - only just over 9 runs per wicket. Quite a change.

That win has certainly improved our position in the table. We could still drop back into relegation trouble but it's very unlikely now. Cachopa certainly improved our batting, Jordan may not play Championship cricket very often now but he made a telling contribution today and it was good to see Tredwell getting wickets.

GOSBTS!
