Having won the toss and decided to bat Sussex, with Luke Wright 56 and Harry Finch 108 both batting well, looked set for a big score in front of a home crowd, at The 1st Central County Ground, Hove.
That winning feeling... ???? pic.twitter.com/WKnNTvwZ3a— Hampshire Cricket (@hantscricket) May 19, 2018
Sussex 250 (Luke Wright 56, Harry Finch 108)
Hampshire253 - 8 (Hashim Amla 63, Gareth Berg 65, Lewis McManus 41)
Result - Hampshire won by 2 wickets
However, it was not to be and some tight bowling by Hampshire, particularly from Gareth Berg 3-51, Reece Topley 2-47 and Fidel Edwards 2-56 kept Sussex to 250 all out.
Some great bowling from Ollie Robinson for Sussex gave Hampshire a troubled start, however, Hashim Amla 63, Gareth Berg 65 and Lewis McManus 41 kept the score ticking over and Mason Crane 21* and Reece Topley held their nerve at the end to bring Hampshire home in a nailbiting finish.
