This was out of a pure desire to be involved in the game and help the team win it. I will learn a lesson from this and perform better in future matches for Sussex.
coach Paul Fabras said the incidents only marred a terrific match. It’s disappointing that these incidents overshadowed a fantastic match against Leicestershire and all the hard work that has gone into this season. I am upset for our fantastic members and supporters and can assure them that we will work hard to ensure we don’t find ourselves in this position again, he said.
