Scorecard

Gareth Roderick and Chris Dent struck half-centuries for Gloucestershire, who are heading for a fabulous draw at Sussex after a rain-affected day three at Arundel.

Sussex declared overnight on a 351-8 and had Miles Hammond realized in the third over of Gloucestershire’s reply.

Danny Briggs took a fine catch to get The james Bracey out but Dent suspended in there in tricky conditions, opting for 59.

Roderick use six fours on his way to a strong unbeaten 51, with Gloucestershire 146-3 – 205 behind – whilst rain intervened.

At the stop-start day, the weather forced the members into an early lunch and though which they resumed at 16: 00 BST, play lasted just an hour before you once again coming to a halt.

With so little time left amongst people, it would seem the sides will fight for batting and bowling points, rather than a definite result, on the fourth and coto day.
