Ravi Bopara insists Sussex Sharks are not out of the Vitality Blast yet.

But they really to start winning games – and quickly.

Sharks visit Bopara’s old club Essex tonight looking to for only a second win in the South Group.

The skipper said: “Usually in this tournament if you can win one over half your games, you’re around that top four.

“That would be the target for now.

“We still target that. We have got to win at least half the games.

“Mathematically it’s possible.”

Sussex are eighth with two points from five games but Essex have four from four.
