2ND XI: Adkin stars as Seconds bat at Stirlands08-Aug-2012
Will Adkin starred with the bat for Sussex’s Second Eleven yesterday as he hit 91 on Day One of their three-day friendly against Essex at Stirlands CC.
Adkin anchored the innings as Sussex won the toss and elected to bat. He was given good support by Andrew Hodd (52) batting at number three but the innings fell away somewhat after his dismissal as Tim Phillips did the main damage with the ball, taking four wickets.
There were late order contributions from both Robert Woolley (22) and Lewis Hatchett (24 not out) as Sussex closed on 264 for 9 representing a tough day at the crease.
Play continues from 11.00am this morning at Stirlands CC and entrance is of course FREE
