2ND XI: Sussex dismissed on Day One25-Jul-2012
Sussex’s Second Eleven are hoping to make inroads into the Hampshire batting order this morning on Day Two of their three-day friendly at Preston Nomads CC, as the hosts hold a slender lead over their neighbours.
After winning the toss and electing to bat, Sussex were dismissed for 146 in the 56th over of the day as Matt Machan (pictured) top-scored with 46, opening the batting. Will Adkin made 33 and Callum Jackson 26 but no other player made double-figures as Jack Sheppard did the damage to the middle and lower order, taking 5 wickets for only nine runs.
Hampshire ended the day 132 for 1, only 14 runs behind Sussex with Naveed Arif Gondal taking the only wicket.
Day Two resumes at 11.00am this morning and entrance at Preston Nomads is of course FREE
