Monty Panesar led the way as Sussex secured their second LV= County Championship Division One win of the season with a commanding 10-wicket triumph over Surrey at Horsham.
The left-arm spinner was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets but also squeezed the batsmen into submission, conceding just 33 runs from his 32 overs.
Surrey captain Rory Hamilton-Brown provided obdurate resistance with 47 off 160 balls but it was in vain as they were all out for 248 - leaving Sussex a paltry target of 22 runs for victory.
