The Essex Eagles got their Twenty20 campaign back on track with a 17 run victory over the Sussex Sharks at Hove.

England pair Ravi Bopara and Graham Napier helped Essex to a tight Twenty20 Cup defeat of Sussex at Hove.

Chasing 149 to win, the hosts looked to be on course when Dwayne Smith's 30 helped them to 75-3.

But Napier (3-21) trapped the West Indian lbw, as he and Chris Wright (4-24) ensured that Sussex could only muster 131 all out.

Earlier, Bopara top scored with 45 as Essex were dismissed for 148 in 19.4 overs after winning the toss.

The win puts Essex third in the South Division, level on points with Kent, but a point behind Surrey, who have played a game more.
