Rawlins & Sussex through to Quarter-Finals
Delray Rawlins and his Sussex teammates romped into the Quarter-Finals of the Vitality Blast for the first time since 2015 with a 31-run win over Middlesex in front of a packed The 1st Central County Ground.
Skipper Luke Wright, returning after missing two games with a back injury, made 74 and fellow opener Phil Salt hit 66 from just 25 balls in their 215 for 5 after they had been put in, unfortunately for a second game in a row Rawlins was out without scoring.
Rapid half-centuries by Paul Stirling and John Simpson, who shared 122 in 8.1 overs for the second wicket, had Middlesex on course for victory halfway through their reply, but leg-spinner Will Beer removed both in successive overs and Middlesex’s hopes of claiming only their second win of the season effectively ended when Eoin Morgan was run out in the 15th over. They lost their last seven wickets for 26 in 5.4 overs and were bowled out for 184 in 19.4 overs.
