Rilee Rossouw produced another standout performance from South Africans playing in England’s T20 Blast.
Rossouw followed his 67 off 29 balls earlier in the week with a blistering 74 from just 29, but failed to save Somerset from their first defeat of the season as Sussex enjoyed a 47-run success on Wednesday.
His assault was relentless as he charged to a 17-ball half-century with a pulled six off Steve Finn.

Skipper Dane Vilas chipped in with a handy 34 runs off 22 balls in Lancashire’s 17-run victory over Derbyshire.
