Delray Rawlins watched his teammate Luke Wright smack 105 off 87 balls as Sussex ended Somerset’s unbeaten start to the season with a 75-run Royal London One-Day Cup win at Taunton.
The 33-year-old opener blasted 10 fours and 3 sixes to lead his side to 341 for seven after winning the toss. David Wiese hit 58 not out and Michael Burgess 56, while there were three wickets each for Max Waller and Tim Groenewald.
In reply, Somerset made 266 all out, the in-form James Hildreth top-scoring with 87. Aussie Matt Renshaw made 55 on his List A debut for the county and Steve Davies 56, but despite their efforts the hosts finished well short.
Ben Kitt and Matt Carter took three wickets apiece but Kamau Leverock and his Nottinghamshire’s Second XI teammates nevertheless suffered a chastening day in the field on the first day of their County Championship clash against Leicestershire at Kibworth.
After winning the toss and opting to bat under sunny skies, the hosts’ Harry Dearden and Harry Swindells both scored centuries in an opening stand of 215.
Laurie Hill and Mark Pettini also registered half centuries to carry Leicestershire to 358-3, and they eventually finished on 401-7 declared.
It left Notts nine overs to bat at the end of the day and they progressed to 35-0 before stumps.
Leverock opened the bowling, he finished with figures of 11-1-73-1.
