DERBY WEEKEND: Sussex & Hampshire in 'alternative' battle04-Jul-2013
It's the battle of the South Coast rivals over the next two Friday nights as Sussex Sharks entertain Hampshire Royals at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground tomorrow (7.10pm start). before the return match at the Ageas Bowl next Friday.
Taking part in a bowling contest of a different kind recently was the Sharks’ Scott Styris, who faced Hampshire spinner Danny Briggs in a skittles match on neutral ground – the Barley Mow pub in Walderton – right on the border between the two counties.
In true Friends Life t20 style – there had to be some late drama as the scores were tied at 35-all after five attempts each, taking the match to the proverbial “super-over!”
You can see how the events unfolded by watching the video above.
