Sussex urged to forget T20 hammering

The Argus: Mark Robinson Mark Robinson

Sussex coach Mark Robinson has told his players to forget last night’s hammering at the Oval as they bid to halt their alarming dip in form.

The Sharks lost their fourth consecutive game in the NatWest T20 Blast in emphatic fashion as Jason Roy inspired Surrey to a ten-wicket win.

Roy blasted 81 from just 43 balls in a record partnership of 149 with Hashim Amla as Surrey cruised to victory with 27 balls to spare.

Sussex will attempt to bounce back against Somerset at Arundel Castle tomorrow (2.30pm).

Robinson said: “We just weren’t good enough. We were hammered so all you can say to the players is go home and get ready for the next game.

Twenty20 is a cruel game and once the momentum goes against you it is very hard to turn it around.

“They are all hurting but they have got to pick themselves up and go again.”

Sussex are a very poor side currently with the exceptions of Joyce and MacGoffin. Their is no spine to the batting and players seem unable to knuckle down and play sensibly. Robinson,probably disappointed at not getting the England job seems unable to motivate players now and the alarming lack of signing a decent batsman seems ridiculous unless money is tighter than forecast.
T20 is a money maker but another defeat and our interest in that competition will go and so will the fans. The county game is dying on its feet with the best players taken away for the ECB without any concern for the paying public who want to see their best players on the field.
currently we will do well to avoid relegation.
