The thought of the top two sides in Division Two going head-to-head was a mouth-watering one, with Glamorgan – starting the match 20 points behind Sussex – travelling to Hove over the August Bank Holiday weekend for a contest which was likely to decide the destiny of the Division Two title. However, the inclement weather literally put a dampener on proceedings with torrential rain washing out the first day, and leaving the outfield in such a saturated state that further showers on subsequent days resulted in more hold-ups. After a delayed start on the second morning, Mark Cosgrove struck another high-class century, full of savage cuts and booming drives, plus a series of deft glides behind square on the offside. Shortly before posting his fifth century of the season, the southpaw also reached a personal milestone as he passed 1,000 runs in the season for the first time in his career. After Cosgrove was yorked by Yasir Arafat, with the Australian being felled by the ball, the rest of the Glamorgan innings also fell away as the Welsh county lost their last eight wickets for 82 runs. The timbre of the Sussex innings was similar, as the visiting bowlers atoned for a wayward performance before lunch on the third day by producing some top quality swing and seam bowling in the afternoon session. James Harris made the initial incision, including his 50th

– scythed through the middle order as Sussex lost their last eight wickets for 84 runs. Just as the large band of Glamorgan supporters began to discuss a possible run chase, the rains returned to crucially curtail the final session, leaving the Welsh county with little time in which to set a realistic target and, most important of all, an insufficient number of overs in which to bowl out Sussex for a second time. The final day duly saw Tom Maynard strike a 69-ball fifty as Glamorgan were dismissed for 210 shortly before tea on the last day as for the third successive time in the contest wickets tumbled in mid-afternoon with Luke Wright taking four wickets in as many overs. His efforts meant that Sussex were left with a target of 261 in 45 overs – something which became completely academic as Waters claimed two wickets in his opening salvo, and at 5pm, the captains shook hands as the match ended in a draw. In all, the loss of 121 overs was decisive, but the draw meant Glamorgan - who had not been disgraced away from home against the leaders - stayed 22 points ahead of Worcestershire in third place and 26 points clear of Gloucestershire, back in fourth.
