Hampshire253 - 8 (Hashim Amla 63, Gareth Berg 65, Lewis McManus 41)

However, it was not to be and some tight bowling by Hampshire, particularly from Gareth Berg 3-51, Reece Topley 2-47 and Fidel Edwards 2-56 kept Sussex to 250 all out.

Some great bowling from Ollie Robinson for Sussex gave Hampshire a troubled start, however, Hashim Amla 63, Gareth Berg 65 and Lewis McManus 41 kept the score ticking over and Mason Crane 21* and Reece Topley held their nerve at the end to bring Hampshire home in a nailbiting finish.
