NEXT MATCH: Durham Cricket vs Sussex Sharks

Crocombe and Hunt shine for Sussex

Henry Crocombe was the star of the show for Sussex on day 3 of the LV= Insurance County Championship match against Glamorgan at The Sophia Gardens County Ground.

After a tough day in the field yesterday, young seamers Crocombe and Sean Hunt ripped through the Glamorgan batsman to ensure Sussex remained in the game. 

Crocombe was on fire in the morning session, taking his first three wickets of the day for just five runs. He was backed up by fellow youngster Hunt, who took the first wicket of the innings yesterday, followed up with two more today to finish up on 3-72 from his 19 overs. 

20 year-old Crocombe can be delighted with his performance on a pitch that at times offered little movement at all. He finished the day with career-best bowling figures of 4-84 from 22 overs. 

Heading into the second innings, Sussex trailed by 118 and were on the back foot after losing the early wickets of Tom Haines and Tom Alsop.

Top scorers from the first innings Tom Clark and Oli Carter brought some stability to the innings, putting on a well-fought partnership of 60 runs as the day wore on, however Glamorgan will be delighted that they managed to take Clark's wicket on the final ball of the day. 

Sussex closed the day 29 runs behind Glamorgan's first innings total and with the in-form Oli Carter still at the crease, will be hoping he can stick around for the majority of play tomorrow.
