WINTER WATCH: Latest round-up of action from over the festive period

03-Jan-2017

The Big Bash has been making the headlines down under during the festive period and Sussex’s skipper Luke Wright has been amongst the runs in Melbourne Stars’ two outings so far.

He helped the Stars to a seven-wicket victory over Hobart Hurricanes by hitting 48 from only 29 balls in their opening fixture on Boxing Day, but they went down by seven runs on New Year’s Day in the Melbourne derby, as they were beaten by the Renegades on the Duckworth/Lewis Method. Wright top-scored for the Stars, making 45 from 40 balls.

The Stars are back in action tomorrow (Wednesday) when they face Sydney Thunder at the Sydney Showground Stadium.

Sussex’s Chris Jordan is also currently in the Big Bash and has been steadily taking wickets for the Adelaide Strikers, who are coached by former Yorkshire chief Jason Gillespie and have played four matches so far.

Jordan claimed two wickets apiece in each of the first three matches for the Strikers, including a stunning caught and bowled against Sydney Sixers to dismiss Kent rival Sam Billings on New Year’s Eve, as Adelaide won by 48 runs. Click HERE to see the wicket.

Next Tuesday (10th) sees the Strikers head to the MCG to take on the Melbourne Stars, a clash which could see Wright and Jordan go head to head.

Tymal Mills has been in good form for the Auckland Aces in New Zealand’s McDonald’s Super Smash, taking 10 wickets in the T20 tournament at an average of 23.70, and with an economy of 6.61.

The Aces have enjoyed a strong tournament, but losing out to Central Districts on Tuesday in a match drastically shortened by rain means they cannot qualify for the final of the competition.

Vernon Philander, Sussex’s overseas signing for the first half of the 2017 season, is enjoying a fine run of form with the South African Test team and starred in their 206-run victory over Sri Lanka at Port Elizabeth last week.

Philander claimed figures of 5 for 45 in the first innings as the Sri Lankans were bowled out for 205, and he also chipped in with a wicket in the second innings as the hosts claimed a comfortable win.
