Batting failed to back up the fielding efforts on a green top in Sussex
Fine bowling performance from our battery of eight bowlers restricted the hosts to 160. Wickets fell regularly, but the difference was probably made as a limpet-like opener and rumbustious number 5 cast off the shackles in the middle of the innings. A ball was lost in a barn and Fletching trundled on despite 3 late wickets for Abbasi.
Asif again starred in the reply, but at the other end we lost wickets regularly. A rearguard action from Huxtable was never going to be enough and we finished 45 runs short.
