HIGHLIGHTS & STUMPS: Wright blasts Sussex to long-awaited win at Hove13-Aug-2013
Sussex Sharks ended their long wait for a win at Hove as they thrashed Netherlands in the Yorkshire Bank 40 this evening.
The Sharks had not tasted victory at their home ground in any format for more nearly a year but brought that miserable run to an emphatic end.
Luke Wright smashed 114 as Sussex chased down a target of 186 to win with nine wickets and 112 balls to spare.
Earlier Netherlands had lost their last seven wickets for just 60 runs as they were bowled out with more than four overs to go.
The result keeps Sussex in fourth place in Group A but will help rebuild confidence following a run of only one win in their previous 14 competitive matches.
