Report: Sussex v Warwickshire, Metro Bank One Day Cup

Ed Barnard continued his outstanding form in the Metro Bank One Day Cup with his second successive century as Warwickshire scrambled to a one-wicket win over Sussex to seal top spot in Group B and a home semi-final on 29 August.

The 27-year-old all-rounder, who had earlier taken his 11th wicket in this season’s competition, took his aggregate to 590 runs with 100, two days after he had made 161 against Durham. He has also scored three fifties.

Sussex had fancied their chances of ending a dismal campaign with only their second win when they had Warwickshire 126 for four halfway through their pursuit of 276 and again when they removed Barnard and Ethan Brookes, who’d put on 78 for the fifth wicket, in successive overs with 64 still needed.

Jake Lintott hit a breezy 28 but Henry Crocombe picked up two wickets to keep Sussex in contention and when last man Oliver Hannon-Dalby walked out Warwickshire still needed 13 off 16 balls.

Sussex had one last opportunity but sub fielder Zach Lion-Cachet dropped Danny Briggs on the boundary and Briggs swung the next ball over mid-on for four to seal a seventh win out of eight.

As group winners, Warwickshire will now host a home semi-final on Tuesday 29 August at Edgbaston, 11am start. Members and under 16s will go free, while adult tickets are only £10.

Barnard and Rob Yates had begun with 83 in 13 overs for the first wicket, but their progress was checked by three wickets in six overs, two of them for all-rounder Dan Ibrahim, who found some extra seam movement to defeat Yates while Alex Davies played on. Skipper Will Rhodes drove to mid-off and Jake Bethell under-edged to the keeper before Barnard and Brookes rebuilt.  

Barnard was stumped giving off-spinner James Coles the charge, having hit nine fours and twice cleared the short boundary on the eastern side while Brookes (43) was leg before sweeping Bertie Foreman in the next over.

Put in by Rhodes, Sussex’s 275 for 8 featured three half-centuries, but no one was able to push on and make the big score that would have given them a more competitive total on a slow pitch.

Tom Alsop top scored with 68 – his first fifty of the tournament – and Tom Haines hit 55 – his fourth half-century – before Ibrahim made it back-to-back fifties as he added 65 for the seventh wicket with Foreman – another 19-year-old – as 93 were plundered off the last ten overs.

At least Sussex made a decent total without a major contribution from Cheteshwar Pujara, who was leg before to Henry Brookes for 23 from 40 balls and looked unusually out of sorts.

Warwickshire bowled tightly. The competition’s leading wicket-taker Hannon-Dalby claimed his 24th victim when Ibrahim feathered an edge to wicketkeeper Kai Smith and there were two wickets for leg-spinner Lintott, who pinned Haines leg before to end a second-wicket stand of 83 with Alsop.

Alsop has been in poor form in the tournament with single-figure scores in five of his previous seven innings but looked more assured until holing out in the deep to give Lintott a second wicket.

Ibrahim and Foreman swelled the total in the closing overs, their partnership spanning just 35 balls with Ibrahim’s 56 coming from 46 deliveries.

Lintott said, “It was a brilliant game and we made hard work of it at the end but we’re proud to win seven out of eight, that’s an awesome effort and we can now look forward to a home semi-final next week.

“That was the aim at the start of the group stage. We felt we had a good squad and we’ve got stronger as the tournament has gone on. We feel in a really good place as a squad. Young players have come in and not looked out of place and everyone in the squad has contributed. 

“That was the second game in a row when we broke the back of the chase and let the opposition back in. We’re disappointed with that, we will need to be more ruthless if we’re going to reach the final.”

Preview: Sussex v Warwickshire, Metro Bank One Day Cup

Warwickshire welcome back spinner Danny Briggs as they look to close out an impressive Metro Bank One Day Cup group campaign with victory at Sussex to rubber stamp a semi-final spot.

An agonizing one-run defeat at home to Durham on Sunday means the Bears still need another point to guarantee a place in the last four and a home tie on Tuesday 29 August.

Briggs has been released by Oval Invincibles and is included in a 14-man squad for Tuesday’s (22 August) trip to Hove.

Michael Burgess is rested for the game and will be replaced behind the stumps by either Alex Davies or Kai Smith.

First Team Coach Mark Robinson knows a superior run rate (1.494) over league chasers Worcestershire (0.533) and Gloucestershire (0.697) – who’ve both ensured qualification from Group B – should still be enough even if his side lose at bottom-placed Sussex.

“It’ll need a big swing in the run rate for us to miss out on top spot,” he said. “But we can’t take it for granted.

“That’s one of the frustrations at losing to Durham – a game we should have won – as I would have loved to rest a couple of players at Sussex ahead of the knockouts and our four remaining championship games.

“We’ve got some big battles to come – but we want to book that semi-final tie and won’t take any chances.

“Fatigue can play a part, the games are coming thick and fast again, and that’s why we’re giving Burgy a rest. We’re lucky in that we’ve got Al and Kai who can both step in.”

Robinson said his side put themselves in several game-winning positions against Durham – their first defeat in an otherwise blemish-free league run – but couldn’t close the game out as they chased a big 338 total.

He added: “We got ourselves into positions to go on and win. 165/2; five down and only needing six-and-a-half an over; and the last five overs needing seven an over. We should win in those positions especially against an inexperienced bowling attack.

“But it was a big chase. It was a great game of cricket, a great innings by Bedingham (152) and we had our own hero in Barnard (161) but ultimately his runs were in vain.

“Ed is continuing to revel in his new role. He was desperate to contribute some match-winning performances and he’s doing that in this competition.

“The change of role has helped him, given him batting confidence, and alongside Olly we have arguably the One Day Cup’s two most valuable players right now.”

Sussex lie bottom of Group B with one win from seven games – that coming on 11 August with a four-wicket win at Somerset – and the match-up pitches the Bears against former Director of Cricket Paul Farbrace for the first time since he left Edgbaston last October.
