Sussex 176 for 3 (Carey 61, Salter 3-37) beat Glamorgan 174 for 4 (Marsh 52, Ingram 50) by seven wickets

A blistering half-century from Australia's Alex Carey at the top of the innings, with useful support from the middle order, enabled Sussex to easily overcome Glamorgan's challenge and remain at the top of the South Group. Glamorgan, meanwhile, have yet to win a game this season, and have just the final game, at home against Hampshire on Friday, to redeem themselves.

Sussex, needing to score at more than 8.5 an over, were without their captain and opening batsman Luke Wright who had damaged his wrist whilst fielding but Carey proved a capable deputy by destroying the Glamorgan attack in the opening overs.

Marchant De Lange was struck for 33 in his two overs as Carey raced to 50 from 23 balls, and after six overs Sussex were 72 without loss - 27 runs ahead of Glamorgan after the Powerplay. Andrew Salter then dismissed both openers, Phil Salt bowled heaving across the line, then Carey feathering a catch to the wicketkeeper

Salter took his third wicket in the 12th over when Delroy Rawlins swung across the line, but Sussex remained in control, needing 55 from the remaining eight overs. With David Wiese hitting arguably the biggest six seen at the ground - the ball striking the wall of the media centre - and Laurie Evans also punishing some loose bowling, Sussex strode home with 19 balls to spare.

Glamorgan, who opted to bat first, made a steady start with Nick Selman, playing only his third game in the competition this season, and Shaun Marsh scoring 45 from the Powerplay overs with Selman punishing Jason Behrendorff for 17 in his third over.

The opening pair had put on 72, with Selman scoring 40 from 23 balls, which included five fours and two sixes. They were separated in the 10th over, when Selman was caught on the long-off boundary in Will Beer's second over.

Following Selman's dismissal, Marsh began to accelerate, reaching his fifty from 44 balls, with Glamorgan reaching 100 in the 13th over. He added a further two runs before was caught on the square-leg boundary for 52, with four fours and two sixes.

Glamorgan were 164 for 2 with two overs remaining, but Ingram, after a lean season by his standards, scoring only one fifty in the opening game, reached a half-century from 39 balls, before departing to the first ball of the 18th over where Ollie Robinson held on to a well-judged catch on the extra cover boundary. A couple of lusty blows from David Lloyd and Chris Cooke enabled the home team to post a competitive total.
