DANNY BRIGGS admitted it was a proud moment after he became the all-time leading wicket-taker in English domestic T20 cricket – even though he did not see it coming.

Sussex spinner Briggs surpassed former Shark Yasir Arafat’s 156-wicket record when he claimed James Bracey’s scalp in the three-wicket win over Gloucestershire on Sunday.

He gets the chance to add to that tally tonight when Sharks host South Group bottom side Glamorgan at Hove and this time will be able to savour every wicket after the milestone at Bristol went past without any great celebrations.

Briggs admitted: “I had no idea it was the record. I found out through some of the other boys near the end of the game after the club put it on Twitter during the match.

“But it’s a nice feeling and I feel proud of taking that many wickets.

“I also feel thankful for having the opportunity to play in a fair few games and to actually take wickets.”

The left-arm spinner made his debut in 2010 and his 157 wickets have come from 132 matches with 114 of those during his time with first club Hampshire and 43 since joining Sussex in 2016.

Briggs conceded he made have flown under the radar en route to the record.

He said: “I have been fairly consistent over the years but also it is the accumulation of playing what is my tenth season in the Blast. In all that time the wickets add up.”
