DUBAI: Sussex and Lancashire in pre-season red ball tussle


Jon Lewis takes the wicket of Andrea Agathangelou as he edges Rory Hamilton-Brown in the slips

Sussex began their final pre-season match at 7he Sevens Stadium in Dubai this morning as they faced Lancashire in a two-day game.

It was agreed that both sides would bat for 48 overs today and after Lancashire won the toss and asked Sussex to bat, the innings closed on 188 for 8.

Will Beer top-scored down the order with an unbeaten 37 whilst the other main contributions came from Rory Hamilton-Brown (34), Michael Yardy (26) and Matt Machan (22). England’s James Anderson and Simon Kerrigan took two wickets apiece.

In reply, Lancashire defied the late evening drizzle and bad light to bat through their 48 overs and score 140 for 4. Steffan Piolet was the pick of the Sussex bowlers with 2 for 29 whilst there were also wickets for Ashar Zaidi and Jon Lewis.

Play continues tomorrow at the slightly earlier local time of 10.00am (6.00am GMT).
