Rawlins stars for Sussex

Delray Rawlins, the young Bermudian all-rounder, starred for the Sussex Second XI team in a losing cause against the MCC Young Cricketers in their three-day championship match at The Saffrons in Eastbourne.

Rawlins claimed nine wickets in the match, including six for 79 off 32 overs with seven maidens in the first innings on Wednesday as the MCC were dismissed for 236.

The 18-year-old claimed three more wickets in the second innings, three for 52 from 17.5 overs, as the MCC youngsters were dismissed for 213. Sussex scored 150 in the first innings and 224 in the second to lose by 75 runs in the match that ended yesterday.

Rawlins was the fifth bowler used in the first innings, but came on as first-change in the second innings with MCC leading by 86 after the first innings.

Rawlins was also top scorer for Susex in the first innings, scoring 31 from 70 balls, hitting four fours and a six after coming in at five.

In the second innings Rawlins scored only five before he was bowled.

Rawlins has ruled out playing any cricket in Bermuda this summer and will stay in Sussex chasing his dream of earning a place in the England Under-19 squad.

The Bermuda Under-19 captain has been invited to join the England development programme with the possibility of selection for England later this year.
