Recent Match Report – Sussex vs Northants Group 3 2021



Pair bowl Sussex out for 106 before Rob Keogh, Saif Zaib fifties spur Northamptonshire on further


Northamptonshire 214 for 5 (Zaib 66*, Keogh 66, Robinson 4-31) lead Sussex 106 (Robinson 49*, Berg 5-18, Sanderson 5-28) by 108 runs

Ben Sanderson and Gareth Berg sliced Sussex apart before Rob Keogh and Saif Zaib garnered half-centuries as Northamptonshire enjoyed a dominant day in the LV= Insurance County Championship.

Veteran fast bowlers Sanderson, 32, and Berg, 40, both returned five-wicket hauls, 5 for 28 and 5 for 18 respectively, as Sussex were skittled for 106.

The visitors’ pain could have been worse – having been 25 for 7 – had it not been for England Test hopeful Ollie Robinson’s unbeaten 49.

Robinson then claimed 4 for 31 but Northants romped to 214 for 5 thanks to Keogh’s 66 and Zaib’s 66 not out, to lead by 108 at the end of day one at Wantage Road.
