The Sharks will be buoyed by their first victory of the campaign last night as they beat Durham by three wickets to pull off a remarkable win at The County Ground.

Will Beer and Yasir Arafat put together an unbroken stand of 97 from 88 balls, a record Sussex eighth-wicket stand in List A cricket.

Beer hit his highest score in the format for Sussex with an unbeaten 45, and Arafat followed up his three wickets earlier in the day to claim the man-of-the-match Award.

Sussex’s squad remains unchanged from last night’s match against a Surrey side who also got off the mark in the Group B table yesterday as they tied with Kent.

The Sussex squad is as follows: WAT Beer, BC Brown, C Cachopa, LJ Hatchett, EC Joyce, CJ Liddle, MW Machan, CD Nash, SA Piolet, LWP Wells, LJ Wright, SAA Zaidi and Yasir Arafat.
