SECOND ELEVEN: Victory over Guernsey in Twenty2016-May-2013
Sussex’s Second Eleven made light work of their hosts Guernsey yesterday as they beat the Islanders by 8 wickets in their Twenty20 match at the KGV Sports Ground, Castel in Guernsey.
The hosts won the toss and after electing to bat could only make 79 for 8 from their 20 overs as some tight Sussex bowling restricted the Guernsey line-up. Opener GH Smit top-scored with 22 as Matt Hobden, Fynn Hudson-Prentice and Will Beer all took two wickets apiece. Elliott Hooper also chipped in with one.
Sussex had no problem reaching their target as Callum Jackson (pictured) hit an unbeaten 44 to as Sussex reached 83 for 2 inside 12 overs. Skipper Beer also made 25.
The teams meet again this morning for a 40-over match at the same venue which begins at 10.30am. Click HERE for updates via Twitter. The full scorecard from Wednesday's match can be viewed HERE
