The Middlesex innings was interrupted after 22 overs with 3 wickets down - i.e. with 18 overs remaining. At this point, we have a resource percentage of 47.4% remaining.
It resumed after the loss of 5 overs, i.e. with 13 remaining. At this point, Middlesex have a resource percentage of 38.1% remaining.
Thus, Middlsex have lost 9.3% from their original 90.3%, i.e. their 125 was made from a resource of 81%.
Sussex only get to bat for 35 overs. This represents a resource percentage of 84.2%, 3.2% more than Middlesex had.
In this 3.2%, Middlesex *should* have been able to get 3.2% of 225 runs (225 runs is the average number of runs an ECB county should get from a resource percentage of 100%), namely 7.2 runs.
Thus Sussex are set a target of 125 + 7.2, or (rounding up), 133.
