Sussex recover to reach the summit

Sussex moved to the top of the South Group after recovering from a terrible start to convincingly beat Middlesex by 49 runs in the Friends Life t20 fixture at Lord's last night.

The visitors were 2 for 2 in the second over but solid contributions from Luke Wright, Lou Vincent and Murray Goodwin, allowed them to recover to 165 for 8.

Middlesex were then reduced to 61 for 4 halfway through their reply. Meanwhile, Nottinghamshire's Alex Hales hit 67 from 39 balls as they beat Warwickshire by 54 runs.
