Delray Rawlins Leads Sussex To Victory

July 10, 2021 | 0 Comments

An unbeaten 50 by Delray Rawlins helped guided Sussex to a crucial six-wicket win over the Essex Eagles in the Vitality Blast at The 1st Central County Ground.

The victory lifted Sussex into second place in the South Group and one win from their two remaining games, away to Hampshire and Kent, will be enough to secure a place in the quarter-finals. Essex will need to win both their games to have a chance of making the last eight.

Sussex were in trouble after two of their other experienced players, Travis Head and David Wiese, departed cheaply to leave them 67 for four at halfway. But after a skittish start, Rawlins gave Ravi Bopara impressive support in a stand of 85 in 8.4 overs which took the game away from Essex, despite miserly bowling by spinners Simon Harmer and Aron Nijjar, who had combined figures of three for 34 from 7.3 overs.
