WINTER WATCH: Latest round-up of action from Sussex players around the globe

07-Nov-2016

Tymal Mills will have to wait for his Bangladesh Premier League bow

Sussex’s Tymal Mills made his debut in the Bangladesh Premier League on Tuesday for the Chittagong Vikings, after rain had delayed the start of the tournament over the weekend.

Mills’ Chittagong Vikings side were due to face Barisal Bulls on Saturday in Dhaka, but, like three other matches over the weekend, no play was possible due to heavy rain and the decision has been taken to reschedule the matches for later in the tournament, rather than share the points between the teams.

The Vikings eventually faced Comilla Victorians in Dhaka on Tuesday morning and sealed a 29-run victory, with Mills claiming figures of 1 for 28 from his four overs. He and the Vikings will be back in action on Wednesday when they play Rangpur Riders (1.00pm GMT). A full scorecard is available HERE

The ICC World Cricket League came to its conclusion over the weekend in Los Angeles. Sussex’s Delray Rawlins, who recently signed a first professional contract at Hove, was a late arrival to Bermuda’s campaign due to his involvement with England Young Lions, but he immediately helped them to victories over Denmark and Jersey.

Bermuda though were beaten by Italy on Friday, despite 23 and figures of 2 for 21 from 10 overs for Rawlins, and in their 3rd place play-off with Denmark on Saturday, they were also defeated. Rawlins opened the batting and the bowling for the island nation, scoring 24 and claiming figures of 1 for 62. Former Sussex seamer Amjad Khan starred with 3 for 14 from eight overs for the Danes.

Rawlins will now continue his winter development with the England Young Lions, with training camps in both Loughborough and Dubai during November and December.

Jonty Jenner, of the Sussex Academy, hit his second half-century of the tournament on Friday, as Jersey won a nail-biting affair against hosts USA by a single run. Jenner made 57 from 53 balls as the Channel Islanders beat the eventual winners of the tournament.

It was a strong finish to the campaign for Jersey as they defeated Italy by 42 runs in their 5th place play-off on Saturday as Jenner made 21. Bermuda and Jersey finished in fourth and fifth places respectively in the table, both on four points each.

Down under, there was a third successive three-wicket haul for Danny Briggs, who is spending the winter playing club cricket in Melbourne. He claimed figures of 3 for 29 as his Marcellin Old Collegians side defeated Old Carey in the Wright Shield.

Young seamer Abi Sakande, who put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Sussex last month, is playing club cricket in New Zealand and enjoyed a superb day in the Nelson Premier League, in Central Districts. He took 4 for 16 for Wakatu, a ten-over spell which began with four maidens, as his side bowled out ACOB for only 36 to win by 137 runs.
