ACADEMY: Salt blasts double-century at Horsham04-Aug-2014
Phil Salt struck an unbeaten double-century for the Sussex Development XI on Sunday as they drew their latest Sussex Premier League match with Horsham CC.
The 17 year-old batsman struck 19 fours and 9 sixes in his 129-ball knock as Sussex racked up 348 for 3 declared from 53 overs, and he was well supported by Fynn Hudson-Prentice (61) and Joe Ludlow (55 not out).
Despite the big total the hosts managed to cling on for a draw at Cricket Field Road. George Garton took four wickets for Sussex with Abi Sakande (2 for 43) and James Allen (2 for 32) taking two wickets apiece, but Horsham held on, making 240 for 9.
The Development XI are back in action this Sunday 10th August when they face Eastbourne at The Saffrons (12.30pm start).
