More thoughts on Sussex sport and the Hundred

Yesterday I had intended to go to Hove Cricket Ground to see the Sussex Sharks v Kent Spitfires in the Royal London 50 over match. Except for a window in the afternoon there was no play and the game ended “no result’, Sussex’s sixth such ending in all competitions. It was little consolation [...]

We’ve all been there ….
