Sussex v Derbyshire abandoned

Today’s heavy rain has seen Sussex Sharks’ CB40 match against Derbyshire Falcons at Horsham abandoned.

The game will be declared a draw with each team awarded a point.

Sussex were struggling on 111/5 after 24 overs when the rain began to fall and after it continued non stop for more than two hours the match was finally called off.

Joe Gatting was the Sussex top scorer with 34 but three early wickets from seamer Tim Goenewald had Derbyshire well on top when the players left the field at 3.15pm.
