CT20: Sussex out of Caribbean T2019-Jan-2012
Sussex Sharks were beaten by Barbados lastnight in the Caribbean T20 as their Caribbean T20 campaign came to an end at the Kensington Oval.
19th January 2012
After winning the toss and electing to bat, the Sharks disappointingly collapsed to 89 all out inside 18 overs as Barbados took full use of their home advantage. Their West Indian fast bowling duo of Fidel Edwards and Tino Best claimed three wickets apiece whilst skipper Michael Yardy was the pick of the batsman for Sussex, hitting 33 from 34 balls.
The Sharks did manage to quell the threat of former player Dwayne Smith as he was run out for 18 but Barbados needed only 14.4 overs to reach their target, with Will Beer taking the other wicket, the legspinner dismissing Jonathan Carter.
It was the third successive time that Barbados had bowled the opposition out for less than 100 and they flew to the top of the table having won three out of three.
