Wright leads Sussex to victory

The Argus: Luke Wright Luke Wright

Luke Wright continued his fine form with the bat as Sussex got their Twenty20 campaign up and running with a 24-run win over Middlesex at Lord's today.

Wright cracked 81 from 49 balls in a first wicket partnership of 84 with Chris Nash (45) and Rory Hamilton-Brown weighed in with 47 as Sussex reached 202-3 from their 20 overs.

Middlesex were up with the rate but could only muster 178-8 as Mike Yardy took 3-30 and Chris Jordan 2-29.

Sussex lost their first match of the new campaign against Surrey at Hove on  Friday.

Great bounce back win for the Martlets, although it was looking a bit dodgy at the start of the Middlesex innings.

Think it might be an idea for them to play an extra bowler judging by the first two games. Let's face it, if the top six don't make runs we are probably going to lose anyway.

All the team except Brown can bowl, so not sure we need more than we already have Bruce - we didn't even use Smith, Wright or RHB :-)

Absolutely OSOTA. Bowlers aplenty, wonder if the reason why Jordan didn't do so well against Surrey was that it was his old team and they were more familiar with his bowling.

I don't think we lack people who can bowl but we do lack a leader of the attack. We also currently don't have the adeptness/experience of a few years ago in bowling the final few overs. Surrey rather had the edge with Dernbach and Mahmood the other night. Jordan is still reaching his potential and will hopefully develop into a top bowler at the 'death' with more experience.

I'm talking about an opening bowler – Hatchett or Anyon perhaps – not bits and pieces bowlers. We have more than enough of them.

As jcd points out, we don't really have a death bowler – and haven't had one since James Kirtley retired.

Fair point, Bruce, I misunderstood what you meant. I think a lot of counties are looking for a Kirtley-type bowler!

Anyon would be too expensive at the death, as he is quite expensive even in the championship. Magoffin would be the perfect death bowler, I think, with his superb control of line and length, but the club are unsurprisingly protecting him from the short-format at the moment.
