Essex captain Ryan ten Doeschate felt his side deserved their win at Sussex on Sunday, which kept alive hopes of progressing in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Matt Coles, Neil Wagner and Ashar Zaidi took two wickets apiece as the hosts made 281-7 at Eastbourne, with Laurie Evans hitting an unbeaten 107.

But Essex reached their target with four wickets and 12 balls to spare thanks to leading contributions from Tom Westley (88), Adam Wheater (60), Dan Lawrence (36) and Varun Chopra (33).

The Eagles host Kent in their last south group game on Wednesday (2pm) and ten Deoschate said: “It sets up Wednesday nicely against Kent. If we win we’ve got a really good chance of going through.

“I thought it was a deserved win for us. I was a little bit disappointed we conceded as many runs as we did in Sussex’s last ten overs, having bowled really well for the first 40 overs but on a ground with small boundaries that can happen.

“We always felt we could chase that target down. It was unfortunate that Tom (Westley) got out in the way he did when it looked as if he was going to get a hundred but apart from that little wobble at the end I felt we deserved to win.”
