NSW managed only 130 but the game was quite one-sided. Professional performance in the field by NSW. The bowlers were disciplined and didn't allow any partnerships to develop. Sussex needed at least one player to drop anchor but nobody really looked comfortable. Had Smith played a blinder of a cameo things could have been different.

Here's the presentation.

Henriques is the Man of the Match: "We have to stay flexible in the batting order. I just tried to play on the front foot."

Joyce: "We didn't hit enough boundaries. We will be looking at out batting line-up in the next game against Eagles."

Katich: "our top order did a fantastic, Steve Smith was outstanding, Lee was fabulous. We wanted to make sure we had our left-right combination correct throughout."

That's it from us for now. Delhi take on Wayamba at 8pm, which is 50 minutes from now. Join us for that as well. Thanks for your company. Cheers guys.

Henriques to Martin-Jenkins, 1 run, nope, sorry lads, Jenkins swings hard at slower ball and heaves it to long-on and NSW are through to the Super Eights!

Can Sussex make it to 100?
