Chawla spins Sussex to win
by CricketArchive Staff Reporter


Ground:County Ground, New Road, Worcester
Scorecard:Worcestershire v Sussex
Player:PP Chawla, MM Ali

DateLine: 15th June 2009

 

Piyush Chawla spun Sussex to a win over Worcestershire as he showed the Indian selectors that he was an improved cricketer. Sussex was able to get full worth of signing up Chawla for a short term as t the Indian leg-spinner followed up his maiden century with six for 152 which. Worcestershire had threatened to escape with a draw when Daryl Mitchell and Moeen Ali defied Sussex for almost three hours in compiling a stand of 208. Moeen Ali completed his century, but in the end it was not good enough.

 

But the Moeen was dismissed by James Kirtley, triggering the loss of four wickets in 10 overs and Worcestershire's fourth defeat in five games. Mitchell applied himself for six-and-a-quarter hours but got out for 99 when he was picked up by Chawla. Ashley Noffke was foxed by Chawla and then Gareth Batty’s dismissal gave him his fifth wicket of the innings.
