Sussex beaten convincingly by Notts Outlaws


The NOTTS OUTLAWS won convincingly in their first game of the Royal London One-Day Cup against the Sussex Sharks, winning by 65 runs at Trent Bridge.

The Outlaws batted 290 runs for seven wickets from their fifty overs, setting a defensible goal for Sussex.

Matthew Montgomery was the batsman’s choice for Nottinghamshire, falling just under a century on 87 carries from just 94 balls before falling behind while bowling Aristides Karvelas.

Karvelas also took Ben Slater’s wicket for just eight carries as the Sharks got off to a good start. The Greek bowler took two for 72 of his ten overs.

Sean Hunt rolled brilliantly, taking two wickets for 59 runs from his ten overs. The fast bowler had Haseeb Hamed caught for 13 carries by Delray Rawlins, who made a great jump catch.

Liam Patterson-White provided the home side with firepower late in the innings by failing to smash 62 from just 46 balls.

The Sharks never really got going in response to Nottinghamshire’s total, sitting on just 107 runs for five wickets halfway through their innings.

Sussex kept losing wickets that stopped the flow of their hitting.

With Cheteshwar Pujara leaving for just nine runs, the result looked ominous for the visitors, who fielded a fairly young squad. The captain was caught by Liam Patterson-White with a low diving catch on the square leg before Dane Paterson bowled.

Giving Sussex a brief hope, Tom Alsop continued on his T20 form by hitting 75 runs from 70 balls. However, Alsop missed a pull shot that hit the ball straight to Lyndon James from Zak Chappell’s bowling.

Paterson, Zak Chappell and Fateh Singh each took two wickets as the Outlaws knocked out the visitors in 44 overs.

Brett Hutton was the most economical bowler for the outlaws, who were putting pressure on Pujara’s side. Hutton took three wickets for just 24 runs from nine overs, including the wicket of Danial Ibrahim, who batted long before the right arm caught him for 40 runs from Ben Slater Sussex beaten convincingly by Notts Outlaws
