Match Report

Sussex Martlets 285 for 4 dec in 49.3 overs – Ashton Turner 165, Rohit Jagota 79 not out

Brighton College 286 for 6 in 57 overs – Sam Grant 153 not out, Tom Prideaux De Lacy 80


An excellent game of cricket on a belter of an Arundel wicket saw Brighton College scamper 2 runs from the last scheduled ball of the match for a famous victory.

Earlier, with the Martlets having rejigged their order to accommodate a few late arrivals, Ashton Turner and Rohit Jagota treated the crowd to a fine exhibition of batting that allowed the Martlets to declare before halfway, setting a challenging target of 286 for victory. Turner in particular was severe on all the bowlers, and his brilliant innings of 165 came from just 132 balls & contained 16 4s & 5 6s.

Despite losing both their openers cheaply to some impressive new-ball bowling from Matt Stone, Brighton College took up the challenge, and a magnificent 3rd wicket partnership of 206 between Sam Grant & Tom Prideaux De Lacy put them in the driving seat before Trubshaw managed to pick up a wicket & give the Martlets an opening. Two further wickets in 1 over threatened to derail the run-chase, but, crucially, Grant remained at the crease as the last over of the final hour began with 8 runs required. Some good running saw the boys home & left the Martlets to retire to The Black Rabbit to lick their wounds.
