REPORT: Nash hits half-century as Sussex warm up with Surrey friendly

24-Mar-2017

Chris Nash on his way to runs against Surrey at Hove

Chris Nash hit his first half-century of the new season on the second day of Sussex’s three-day friendly with Surrey at The 1st Central County Ground.

He made 59 before being caught and bowled by new Surrey recruit Scott Borthwick as Sussex made 120 for 3 from 30 overs in their second innings of the match, Laurie Evans (37) and Ollie Robinson (12) the two unbeaten batsmen at the close of play.

Surrey resumed on 49 without loss this morning and batted for 60 overs of the day, following the 12 overs they had before bad light brought a premature end to proceedings last night.

Dominic Sibley (78 not out) top-scored whilst Borthwick (77) and Mark Stoneman (68) all made half-centuries, and they were ably supported by Rory Burns (47) and skipper Gareth Batty (40 not out).

The wickets for the Sussex attack were shared as Jofra Archer, Stuart Whittingham, Danny Briggs and Ajmal Shahzad all claimed an early scalp for the season, on a sunny but windy day at Hove.

The match resumes tomorrow and both sides will bat for 45 overs in the day with play beginning at 10.30am in order to maximise the light. Lunch will be taken at 12.30pm regardless of the number of overs bowled, and there will also be a break between innings.
