County Cricket Round-Up - 20th May
Rain in the Netherlands meant that only 10.2 overs were bowled in Schiedam as the Group A Yorkshire Bank 40 between the hosts and Sussex ended in a no result. The Dutch had reached 28 for two after being asked to bat by the time the rain arrived, with Lewis Hatchett taking both to the wickets to fall. Sussex gave one-day debuts to Hatchett and 18 year-old Harry Finch.
