'Jof brought a tear to my eyes' - Jordan

Sussex Chris Jordan admits that he felt emotional watching his Sussex and England team-mate Jofra Archer keep his nerve under pressure in last night's electrifying Lord's finale.

Jordan was the man who discovered his fellow Bajan back home in their native Barbados, before helping him to bring him to Sussex in 2016.

“I was sat there thinking regardless of what happens, I’m still very proud of him to have even got to this stage on that journey," Jordan told BBC Sussex.

“Watching Jof go through all that brought so many emotions. I found it hard to get my words out but it brought a tear to my eyes."

As to whether Lord's Archer would be the man for the job in what proved to be a Champagne Super Over, Jordan added: "He was the best person in that team to do the job.

"I'm not at all surprised. I called it from the start. He has plenty of variations and was the most fitting person for that final over. No occasion is too big for him.”

Wildcat strike hits city's bins

Bob Dale

BBC Live reporter

Brighton and Hove City Council says it’s calling in an independent investigator, after a wildcat strike by refuse collectors.

The authority confirmed that unofficial strike action took place at the Cityclean depot, following a number of “allegations and counter allegations about members of staff”.

Some of the staff involved have been asked to work away from the depot, which the council said was to ensure disciplinary and grievance procedures are carried out fairly.

The city’s bin collections were hit by a series of strikes by GMB workers from 2014, in a long-running dispute over pay.

The GMB's Brighton branch said it was told of the walkout by the council on Friday morning, but was not officially involved.

We’re not clear about why the unofficial action took place today but we’re talking with everyone involved and we’re determined to work with the GMB and ACAS to resolve this and agree future ways of working together."
