2ND XI: Heavy downpour spoils Sussex run chase18-Jul-2012
Sussex’s Second Eleven were also thwarted by the weather as they failed to complete their 50-over Friendly match with England Under-17’s at Loughborough today due to heavy rain.
After Sussex’s skipper Will Beer won the toss and elected to field, England were dismissed for 160 in the 49th over as left-armer Chris Liddle (pictured) starred, claiming figures of 4 for 21 from his ten overs.
There were two wickets for Beer himself whilst Michel Rippon also claimed a couple of wickets with his left-arm chinaman.
Unfortunately only 3.1 overs were possible in reply as Andrew Hodd and Matt Machan led Sussex to 17 without loss before the heavens opened. Opening the bowling for England was Sussex Academy prospect Abidine Sakande.
They will attempt to play another 50-over friendly match against the same opposition tomorrow (11.00am).
