CB40: Familiar opposition for Sussex in 201317-Sep-2012
The draw has been made for the 2013 Clydesdale Bank 40 competition and Sussex Sharks will be in Group A of the tournament alongside this season’s runners-up Warwickshire Bears.
The Sharks will face some familiar opposition in this group with three of their opponents also in Sussex’s group for the 2012 season. Other than Warwickshire they will also face neighbouring Kent Spitfires, Northamptonshire Steelbacks, Nottinghamshire Outlaws, Worcestershire Royals and a tricky overseas trip to the Netherlands.
Nottinghamshire are the only side that Sussex are yet to face in this format since the CB40 was re-launched in 2010 with the other sides all featuring in the same group as Sussex in at least one of the last three seasons.
Kent, Netherlands, Northants, Notts, Sussex, Warwickshire, Worcestershire.
Lancashire, Derbyshire, Durham, Essex, Hampshire, Scotland, Surrey.
Glamorgan, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Middlesex, Somerset, Unicorns, Yorkshire.
