Yasir Arafat celebrates his first half-century in domestic cricket since 2004
Sussex Sharks are straight back into Royal London One-Day Cup action today as they take on Surrey at the Kia Oval (2.00pm start).
The Sharks will be buoyed by their first victory of the campaign lastnight as they beat Durham by three wickets to pull off a remarkable win at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground.
Will Beer and Yasir Arafat put together an unbroken stand of 97 from 88 balls, a record Sussex eighth-wicket stand in List A cricket. Beer hit his highest score in the format for Sussex with an unbeaten 45, and Arafat followed up his three wickets earlier in the day to claim the Man of the Match Award.
Sussex’s squad remains unchanged from lastnight’s match against a Surrey side who also got off the mark in the Group B table yesterday as they tied with Kent.
The Sussex squad is as follows:
BC Brown (wkt)
EC Joyce (capt)
