Sussex Sharks Bite

Sussex Sharks won their first T20 Blast game at home over Glamorgan in Hove in some style with a hat trick from Tymal Mills in the final over. A few weeks ago Jefra Archer did the same at Lords against Middlesex. We are now in the business end of the T20 and, with quarter final places assured to [...]

Rain, rain go away

I finally watched 45 minutes of play at Lords before the heavens opened and I hot-footed back to Hove for the crucial T20 blast game against Kent. I say hot-footed but once again there was a trespasser on the line at East Croydon so the Gatwick non-Express crawled pitiably and then a decision was [...]

Sussex Sharks lose again

After our excellent victory at Lords in the week over Middlesex we were flying in anticipation of high-flying Somerset, top run scorers in the south division. Alas it was not to be. We posted a score of 169, Laurie Evans scoring 96 of them but it was never going to be enough with Somerset winning [...]

Sussex Sharks lose in T20

There is not much gained by having the best bowling attack in the T20 – north and south – if you cannot bat as Sussex Sharks showed last night at Hove losing to division leaders Gloucestershire. The Sharks only amassed 127, Laurie Evans  the only one to make a decent score of 41. With [...]

Sussex Sharks lose to Surrey (T20)

Sussex Sharks had one of those days generally titled as a bad day at the office and no one more than Jefra Archer. High hopes were entertained by Sussex in white ball games especially as the new coach Dizzy Gillespie won the Bash with Adelaide and recruited one of their ex-players and the top [...]

A Brighton/Fulham celebration

Alan Tanner and myself had promised to host a celebratory lunch with some Brighton supporting pals should Brighton stay up and Fulham go up. Both happened and we were as good as our word. We chose the right day yesterday as there was no World Cup game and we could also add England’s successful if [...]

Glorious Arundel

One of the many reasons I dislike the Hundred concept is its assumption that cricket is a metropolitan game. As far as back as Hambledon, the first ever cricket club, to matches on the village green and the gloriously picturesque ground at Arundel cricket is at its best in a rural setting. The [...]

Sussex v Australia

I did not really enjoy the 50 over game I watched yesterday at Hove for reasons unconnected with the cricket. On arrival in my resplendently colourful Players Club blazer the jobsworth refused me entry after production of my membership cards. I needed  a paper ticket. This is the problem – [...]

A dinner at the Museum Sussex CCC

Last night I attended a dinner at the museum in the cricket ground at Hove. I much prefer the intimacy and atmosphere of such a dinner to the rather formulaic lunches in large hotel banqueting suites which seem to go on forever. The original guest of honour was Darren Lehmann but more than one [...]

The ODI future

We are now in a cycle of county one day games for the Royal London trophy. Purists are concerned for the future of red ball cricket but if the ECB go ahead with the Hundred then it’s more likely that the ODI format would be squeezed. Sussex under Ted Dexter were early winners of the first one day [...]
