A fine all-round performance by Nash helped Sussex gain a six-wicket victory to push them to third place in the South Group table with two games in hand to Hampshire and Somerset above them.

Gloucestershire batted first and where dismissed for 121 in 18.2 overs with Nash delivering an impressive three over spell to take 4-7, he followed up by scoring an unbeaten 36 as Sussex passed the visitors total in 18.1 overs.

Sussex go to Whitgift School to play Surrey on Monday when they’ll have the opportunity to close the four point gap to leaders Hampshire and are available at odds of 4/5 at Coral to beat the Lions.

Surrey are coming off the back of a t20 win at Cardiff where they beat Glamorgan by 18 runs on Saturday and are available at odds of 6/5 at Sportingbet to follow up with a home win on Monday.

Zander de Bruyn top scored with the bat as Surrey hit 169-4 in the allotted 20 overs. Tight bowling from the Lions attack meant Glamorgan were never up with the required run rate and ended well short of the target with 151-7 from their 20 overs.
