Four wickets from Tymal Mills were not enough for Sussex to continue their winnings ways as they fell to Glamorgan in the Vitality Blast.

Sam Northeast’s 61 not out was enough to set up a winning target as the hosts claimed a 25-run win against the Sharks.

The wickets from the captain helped to restrict Glamorgan to 183-7 from their 20 overs but a solid bowling display saw the hosts defend the target in Cardiff.

James Coles top scored for Sussex with a career best 69 not out, but Sussex finished 158-6.

Regular wickets throughout the Glamorgan innings meant they had to fight throughout to keep the scoring going.

The home side’s power play brought 56 runs for the loss of two wickets with Chris Cooke and Sam Northeast going well.

Cooke was given a life on 21 when Dan Hughes slipped while attempting to take a straightforward catch, but he was dismissed by Mills for his first wicket shortly after.

Two wickets in two balls from Mills pegged the hosts back once again. The first was Colin Ingram who was bowled off an inside edge, then Marnus Labuschagne was bowled next ball.

Mills claimed his fourth wicket when he had Dan Douthwaite dismissed for 11 for his second four wicket haul in as many games.

Sussex started brightly thanks to an expensive over from Tom Bevan but two wickets inside the power play slowed them a little.

A steady stand of 42 between Carter and James Coles kept them in the contest, but Carter was dismissed for 33 after earlier being given a reprieve by a dropped catch.

Three quick wickets saw Sussex go from 73-2 to 85-5 and just at the point where Sussex needed to accelerate Crane put the brakes on thanks to his excellent spell that did not concede a single boundary.

The second of Crane’s wickets came from a fantastic boundary catch from Labuschagne that saw him toss the ball back into play to claim the wicket of John Simpson.

With 65 runs needed off 18 balls by the end, the match slipped from Sussex as they were handed their first defeat of the competition.
