Panthers claim hard fought victory over Sharks

Felix Austin | cricket20

The Middlesex Panthers claimed a vital 5 wicket victory over the Sussex Sharks to keep alive their hope of reaching the Friends Provident t20 quarter finals.

Having been set a total of 141 for victory the visitors reached their target with 4 balls to spare thanks to Owais Shah (34) and Scott Newman (30) who topped scored on a slow wicket.

The defending champs suffered their third defeat in the space of 4 games after their top order was blown away by Tim Murtagh (3-24) to leave the home side 37-4.

Ollie Raynor (41) and Will Beer (22) offered some hope but the Sharks total of 140-9 was always going to be 20 runs short and so it proved.
