It wasn’t to be for the Sussex Sharks in the Vitality Blast Final as they were defeated by Worcestershire, by 5 wickets. It was all set up for a tight finish but with 17 needed from the final two overs, the Rapids picked up a single off the first ball, before Jofra Archer bowled an over-waist-high no ball, which went for four byes. The free hit was then dispatched for six. That left four to win and it was Ben Cox who smashed the winning runs off the next ball. It was a such a shame as the game was all set up for a thrilling finish with the game ebbing and flowing throughout.
