The 51st match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2024 did not produce a result as the game between Nottinghamshire and Durham was abandoned due to rain just after five overs at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. However, the second game of the day saw Sussex take on Surrey, with the latter winning by 54 runs.

Put into bat first by Sussex, Surrey got off to a decent start as Dominic Sibley scored 24 off 17 deliveries, smashing five fours at a strike rate of 141.18. Laurie Evans, batting at No. 3, scored 41 off just 24 balls at a strike rate of 170.83 while wicketkeeper batter Jamie Smith top-scored for the brown caps with a quickfire 45 off 22 deliveries. Striking at an impressive 204.55, Smith’s innings was laced with four towering maximums and a solitary boundary.

Other notable contributions came from Rory Burns and Tom Curran, who provided late impetus with an 18-ball 22 and a 13-ball 24, respectively. Both the England internationals collectively scored four boundaries and two sixes. Some late big hits took Surrey to a respectable 184-8 in 20 overs. Danny Lamb was the highest wicket-taker for Sussex with three scalps, while Ollie Robinson played the supporting act with his 2/25.

In response, Sussex never got going with the bat. Opener Harrison David Ward and James Cole departed for silver ducks. Daniel Hughes looked good for his 10-ball 17, but his stay was short-lived as Sean Abbot got the better of him. What followed next was a complete batting collapse as the Sharks were seven wickets down in the first 11 overs of their chase.

In the end, the batting collapse proved to be a bit much for Sussex as they failed to recuperate and lost the game by 54 runs. Tom Curran took 3/39 in his four overs while Spencer Johnson, Gus Atkinson, and Daniel Lawrence took two wickets each for Surrey.
