No play was possible in Sussex Sharks' first home Twenty20 match of the season against Middlesex Crusaders at Hove.

Persistent rain all day ruined any chance of a start and umpires Vanburn Holder and Ian Gould made their decision at 3:50pm.

It at least gets both teams off the mark following defeats in their opening games, Sussex having lost to Essex and Middlesex to Surrey.

The washout wrecked Sussex's hopes of attracting a crowd in the region of 5,000, but they are heading towards a 7,000 sell-out for the forthcoming floodlit home matches against Surrey and Hampshire.

Sussex's advanced sales are also a record, with 16,000 tickets already sold and the county will earn more gate revenue from one Twenty-20 match than their entire home programme of six Championship games.
