Rawlins contributes to Sussex Second XI win
Bermuda all-rounder Delray Rawlins helped Sussex Second XI pick up their first win of the season in a two-wicket victory over Kent in the Second Eleven Trophy at the 1st Central County Ground on Tuesday.
Kent scored 257 for nine from their 50 overs with Rawlins bowling two overs and taking one wicket for 11 runs.
The left-hander then scored 36 from 45 balls during a 57-minute stay at the crease after coming in at No 4 with the score 79 for two in the fifteenth over.
Rawlins hit a four and two sixes before he was fifth out in the 30th over when the score was 157.
Sussex scored their remaining 101 runs in 19 overs, finishing with 258 for eight as wicketkeeper Matt Stiddard's unbeaten 69 from just 61 balls saw them to victory with an over to spare.
After all of Sussex's top four made good starts, with Academy player Harrison Ward scoring 40 at the top of the order. He shared in a sixth-wicket stand of 62 with Brandon Gilmour to keep Sussex on course for victory.
However, three quick wickets left Sussex on 237 for eight before some confident hitting from Stiddard, coupled with good support from Abdullah Nazir, secured the win.
Stiddard is a product of the Surrey Academy and a business economics and finance graduate of Loughborough University. This is his first season playing second XI cricket for Sussex, having previously played for Kent Second XI on eight occasions between 2014 and 2016.
Rawlins and his team began their three-day Second Eleven Championship match against Kent at the 1st Central County Ground yesterday.
