PREVIEW: Sharks prepare to welcome Surrey in NatWest T20 Blast opener15-May-2014
Sussex Sharks open their NatWest T20 Blast campaign for the 2014 season on Friday night, as they welcome Surrey to The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Hove (7.00pm start).
The Sharks will be aiming to open their South Group account against their neighbours under the floodlights, ahead of a visit to Lord’s on Saturday to take on Middlesex Panthers in the first ever domestic ‘double-header’.
Sussex can include two of their England stars in the squad for this opening game against last year’s finalists. Chris Jordan and Luke Wright both available, but Matt Prior remains sidelined with an achilles injury. Overseas seamer Yasir Arafat, who won Australia’s Big Bash with Perth Scorchers earlier this year, is also included.
Tickets are still available for the match and will be at the advanced prices until 12.00pm tomorrow. Any remaining tickets will be available for purchase on the gate. Call 0844 264 0206 to guarantee your ticket! (or click HERE to buy online).
