MATCH ABANDONED: Sharks frustrated by weather at Ageas Bowl

17-May-2017

Sussex Sharks were frustrated by the rain as they were knocked out of the Royal London One-Day Cup today, as their final South Group clash with Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl was abandoned due to rain.

The Sharks needed a win from the final round of fixtures but a full day of precipitation ended their hopes of progression.

Hampshire also had their exit from the List A competition confirmed as the clash was abandoned without a ball bowled.

Constant rain all day put any plans of play to bed with umpires Graham Lloyd and Michael Burns finally calling the match off at 4:50pm.

Hampshire required a win, hope Gloucestershire beat Surrey and a large swing in net run rate to progress to the quarter finals.

But after the game in Bristol was abandoned their hopes of qualifying were destroyed.

Sussex now turn their attentions to the touring South Africans, who they face in a 50-over match at The 1st Central County Ground on Friday (2.00pm start). Click HERE for ticket information.
