Delray Rawlins will be looking to spark a Sussex fightback on day two of their first-class match against Australia A at Arundel Castle today.

The Bermudian all-rounder, five not out, and Abidine Sakande, 0 not out, guided their team to stumps yesterday without further loss after they suffered a late mini collapse.

Sussex were 112 for two with six overs of the day’s play remaining, but lost three wickets for just six runs as the Australians seized the initiative with their late burst.

Rawlins did a good job of shielding nightwatchman Sakande from the onslaught as he remained on strike throughout the final over of the day from Michael Neser, the medium pace bowler. Sussex closed on 118 for five after electing to bat.

The start of the match was delayed until just past 3.30pm because of light rain.

Test bowler James Pattinson ended day one with impressive figures of three for 38.

Rawlins, 21, is making his third successive appearance for Sussex’s first-team having featured in their Specsavers County Championship matches against Durham and Northamptonshire, which both ended in defeats.
