    Neser’s heroics secure draw for Glamorgan against Sussex in County Championship

    The Great Escape: Glamorgan Pulls Off An Epic Draw against Sussex

    On the final day of their match against Sussex, Glamorgan managed to pull off an incredible draw with a score of 737 all out – their second-highest ever innings.

    Australia’s Michael Neser played an outstanding knock with a county-best score of 123. He batted for more than four hours and hit 15 fours and two sixes while Kiran Carlson fell for a career-best best 192.

    Sussex was without England paceman Ollie Robinson due to his ankle injury and captain Cheteshwar Pujara because of stiff neck complications. On the other hand, Steve Smith failed to impress in his brief stay at Sussex despite scoring a fine first-innings knock of 89.

    Fellow Australians Marnus Labuschagne and Neser played crucial roles in salvaging the draw as they defied Sussex’s attack that lacked Robinson. The depleted team could not take advantage even though there were occasional low bounces on the pitch.

    The Second Highest Score Ever Made In The UK

    This epic second innings lasted over two days, consisting of 207.5 overs – making it Glamorgan’s second-highest ever innings behind last year’s record-breaking score of 795-5 at Leicester. It also marked the highest-ever made by any team during their second innings in history!

    Sussex Still Ahead Of Glamorgan

    Sussex is currently ranked second in the Division Two table with one win and five draws, 10 bonus points ahead of Glamorgan who have the same record.

    The Lower Order Resists

    Chris Cooke made a patient 45 before hitting a Tom Haines half-volley straight to mid-wicket. With just seven wickets down and Sussex’s hopes of run-chase still alive at lunchtime, it was up to the lower order to resist – and they did so remarkably well!

    Marnus Labuschagne And Neser Depart For Australia’s Training Camp

    After their incredible performance, both Marnus Labuschagne and Michael Neser are now departing for Australia’s training camp before their matches against India and England. However, Glamorgan remains hopeful that Neser will be available again for some time.

    A Promising Future For The County!

    Glamorgan acting captain Kiran Carlson expressed his delight after this remarkable draw: “It was good to spend more time out there and get another hundred.” He also praised “Ness” and the bowlers’ impressive resistance in securing this fantastic draw against Sussex.
