Winter Watch: Sussex Women make history

24 Dec 2023

In the last Winter Watch before Christmas, we reflect on the Sussex Women’s players who made history this week, news of runs for Harrison Ward under, plus updates on the progress of Nathan McAndrew and Daniel Hughes in the Big Bash.

Women’s European Cricket Championship

Chiara Green, Cassidy McCarthey, Millie Taylor and Daisy Gibb made history this week when they were crowned the first winners of the European Women’s T10 Championship, where they represented England for the National Counties Cricket Association.

The tournament, which was played over six days, culminated in a final that saw the England XI defeat Netherlands by 17 runs.

Sussex’s Daisy Gibb was the standout performer with the ball, taking 2-10 from her allocated overs, helping England to lift the title on Friday.

Nathan McAndrew & Daniel Hughes Big Bash

The Big Bash is underway, with Sussex represented by two of the overseas signings for the 2024 season.

Daniel Hughes’ Sydney Sixers made it two wins from two last week in a narrow game which saw them sneak past the Adelaide Strikers by a single run.

Nathan McAndrew’s Sydney Thunder lost their opener, but bounced back yesterday, beating the Melbourne Stars by 5 wickets. McAndrew was undefeated at the crease, as he made a handy 13 from 5 deliveries.

Dan Ibrahim joins Oli Carter

Sussex allrounder Dan Ibrahim joined Oli Carter for some cricket down under this month and was straight among the runs and wickets this week.

Playing for Newcastle, alongside Carter, Ibrahim made 24 runs and took 2-27 in a T20 victory.

Skipper Carter, who opened the batting, made a quickfire 32 from 14 to help see Newcastle through to the next round of the competition.

Half-century for Ward

Harrison Ward has settled in nicely in Australia, making another half-century at the top of the order for UTS North Sydney. He chalked up 66 from 69 deliveries in a 3 wicket defeat to Bankstown in a 50-over competition.
