NEW ZEALANDER Rhys Grosvenor is in his second season at Portslade Cricket Club and was delighted to be asked back for a second year. In his first campaign, he broke Portslade's wicket-record for a season and his target this year is to improve on his batting with 500 runs the aim.

Grosvenor, 20, said: "My aim at the beginning of the year was to break my wicket-record but I don't think I'll do that now. I'd still hope to get 25 to 30 wickets and around 500 runs." Grosvenor so far has 180 runs from seven innings, with one not out. He scored 331 runs from 14 innings with three not-outs last season.

Why did Grosvenor come back for a second year? "I got asked at the end of last season if I wanted to. After thinking about it back home in New Zealand, and with Portslade paying some money towards my flight I came back. I really wanted to because I enjoyed it so much last season."
