Chris Liddle: Four wickets in Sussex win

Sussex consolidated their place at the top of CB40 group C with a comfortable eight-wicket win over Northamptonshire.

The hosts coasted to victory with 57 deliveries remaining after Chris Liddle (4-21) had helped to dismiss the Steelbacks for a paltry 129.

Northants were yet to win any of their completed matches in the competition and were always unlikely to rectify that after slumping to 46-6 at one stage.

Amjad Khan started the rot with the scalp of Kyle Coetzer on the second ball and Kirk Wernars picked up two wickets in consecutive overs on his CB40 debut.

James Middlebrook (37) and Rob Keogh (30) staged a brief seventh-wicket recovery but both fell victim to whippy seamer Liddle.

Chris Nash and Luke Wright fell early in the Sharks' reply but a 96-run stand from Murray Goodwin (67) and Ed Joyce (38) saw them home with room to spare.
