PREVIEW: Derbyshire the visitors as Championship returns to Hove

11-Sep-2017

Sussex welcome Derbyshire to The 1st Central County Ground for their next Specsavers County Championship Division Two fixture, beginning on Tuesday (12th September, 10.30am start).

Sussex will be without Chris Jordan for the match as a result of his inclusion in the England squad for the T20 International against West Indies at Durham on Saturday. 

Of those that made the trip to Northampton last week, Will Beer is the other player to be omitted, whilst George Garton has been added to the squad.

Squad: 
Ben Brown (captain)
Jofra Archer
Danny Briggs
Laurie Evans
George Garton
Chris Nash
Ollie Robinson
Angus Robson
Stiaan van Zyl
Luke Wells
Stuart Whittingham
David Wiese 
Luke Wright

Following on from three successive away trips, this week’s fixture is Sussex’s first home Championship match since the 231-run win over Leicestershire at Arundel in early July.

Sussex’s recent travels have proven reasonably fruitful, with two wins and 47 points from those three games on the road. 

Despite defeat against Northamptonshire last week, Sussex are very much in contention for promotion to Division One come the end of the season.

Tied with Northants on 156 points, Sussex currently lie in fourth place 36 points behind second-placed Worcestershire in second, over whom they have a game in hand. 

This week’s opponents, Derbyshire lie in ninth place, with a solitary win to their name.

In the corresponding fixture last season, Sussex won by ten wickets. Ed Joyce and Luke Wells both scored hundreds and there were six, five and four wickets respectively for Steve Magoffin, Stuart Whittingham and Ollie Robinson.

Tickets for this week's match are available on the gate or online via the Print@Home facility HERE. Gates open at 9.00am on each day of the match. 

Live commentary of the match will be available online from BBC Sussex HERE. Updates will be provided on the @SussexCCC social media channels via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
