2ND XI: Fall short in Trophy Semi-Final29-Aug-2012
Sussex 2nd XI travelled up to Durham in the Semi-Final of the Second Eleven Trophy against Durham 2nd XI yesterday. Sussex lost the toss and were put into bat. In difficult conditions, Sussex managed 122 all out with the main contributers being Luke Wells (22), Michael Rippon (20) and Matt Machan (16).
The total though was unfortunately not strong enough to trouble Durham and despite two wickets from Lewis Hatchett and Robert Woolley, their opponents won by 5 wickets.
It was an excellent achievement for the Sussex Second Eleven to reach the semi-final this season after also reaching the Second Eleven t20 final this year.
