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.
