Sussex Sharks and Durham had their Royal London Group A match called off without a ball being bowled. There was overnight rain at The 1st Central County Ground and more rain in the late morning and early afternoon gave umpires Mark Newell and Bill Taylor little option but to abandon the game.
It was a frustrating outcome for both sides. Sussex were looking to get off the mark after coming close to causing an upset by beating Lancashire in their opening fixture, while Durham were the form side after posting a record List A score for the county against Kent in their first game. But the umpires made their last pitch inspection at 2.45 and decided to call off the game a short time afterwards.
Sussex Cricket are delighted to announce the appointment of former players, Chris Adams and Tony Cottey, to the club’s cricket committee.
Sussex Cricket is thrilled to announce the appointment of Grant Flower as the club’s batting coach.
Grant arrives at The 1st Central County Ground with over a decade of coaching experience at international level.
Sussex’s George Garton and Tymal Mills have been called-up to a 16-player squad for the England men’s International Twenty20 matches against West Indies next month.
