Richard Levi found some late form to help Northants beat Gloucestershire in the English County Championship.
His 95 helped put Northamptonshire in an almost impregnable position, setting Gloucs 442 to win; a target made impossible by Ben Sanderson taking 8-73. It was Northants fourth win of the season, in which Levi has played just a bit-part, hit by injuries.
His only other innings of note in the Championship came in the third match of his season with a century against Derbyshire, but he was in full control in this innings, hitting 15 fours among the 114 balls he faced, before he was needlessly run out, just five runs short of his eighth first-class hundred.
In 10 matches this season, he has scored 427 runs at an average of 30.5; striking 61 fours, but never a six.
Elsewhere, there was heartbreak for David Wiese, whose fighting stand took Sussex to the brink of victory over Worcestershire. He was on 70 when he literally ran out of partners, 11 runs short.
Set 272 for victory, Sussex were on the ropes at 113-6, but Wiese and Chris Jordan (50) put on 114 in 23 overs for the seventh wicket to get Sussex to within 45 runs of their target. He continued to lead the way, but the inexperience of his partners let the side down.
