Sharks restrict Blues to just 130 runs


Opener Philip Hughes and Moises Henriques scored unbeaten half-centuries to help New South Wales put up a modest 130 for two against Sussex Sharks in a Group B match of the inaugural Champions League.

Hughes played sensibly on the tricky Feroz Shah Kotla wicket to score 61 off 64 balls while Henriques was aggression personified from the time of his arrival at the crease as he took just 33 balls for his 51.

Opener David Warner was the other notable scorer for NSW with 14 runs off 18 deliveries with the help of two fours.

For Sussex leg-spinner Piyush Chawla was the lone wicket-taker, giving away 21 runs off his two overs.

Opting to bat, the NSW started on a cautious note on the unpredictable Kotla pitch, scoring 30 runs in the first six overs.
