Sussex 111 for 5 v Derbyshire No Result

Sussex moved level with Warwickshire at the top of Group C in the CB40 despite their clash with Derbyshire at Horsham being rained off.

Sussex had reached 111 for 5 after 24 overs when the drizzle became too strong and umpires Peter Hartley and Peter Willey abandoned the match.

Tim Groenewald took 3 for 30 from 8 overs to reduce Sussex to 58 for 4 at one stage after Derbyshire elected to field. Joe Gatting and Mike Yardy repaired some of the damage with a stand of 44 for the fifth wicket before Gatting was out for a top score of 34 before the heavens opened.

The result leaves Derbyshire second from bottom in the group and effectively ends their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Scott Styris, the veteran New Zealand all-rounder, looked rusty on his Sussex debut, having not seen any action in the recent Indian Premier League. He made five before his frustration got the better of him and he pulled a short ball from Groenewald to Alex Hughes at deep mid wicket.
