SCOTT STYRIS SMASHED his way into the record books yesterday as he hit the third-fastest century in Twenty20 history to help Sussex past Gloucestershire.

The New Zealander put up 100 runs off just 37 balls in the FL t20 quarter-final at Hove, including a whopping 38 runs in a single over from James Fuller.

“As a player, you want to perform in big games and knock-out games,” the 37-year-old told BBC Sussex afterwards. “Any time you get a hundred is always pretty special.

“In a pressure game, under a bit of heat, it’s up there. It was just nice to get the boys over the line.”

Sussex (230-4) won by 39 runs, holding Gloucestershire to 191-8 to book their place at this year’s finals day.
