ACADEMY: Development XI beaten at Roffey23-Jul-2012
Sussex’s Development XI were narrowly beaten in the Sussex Premier League yesterday as they went down by four wickets against Roffey CC.
Batting first, Ollie Graham was the star of the show for Sussex scoring a 118 at a run-a-ball, a knock which included 12 fours and 2 sixes.
Callum Jackson’s 52 and Josh Hayward’s 34 were the other main contributions in a total of 269 for 8.
Some tight bowling in reply from Fynn Hudson-Prentice put Roffey on the backfoot but Michael Norris’s century was the mainstay of the hosts’ innings and they reached their target for the loss of six wickets off the last over of the innings, in what was an extremely close encounter between the sides.
Sussex Development XI 269 for 8, Roffey CC 270 for 6
