PREVIEW: Sharks ready for sold-out encounter with neighbours Hampshire

14-Jul-2016

Sussex Sharks return to action in the NatWest T20 Blast at a sold out 1st Central County Ground tomorrow evening, as Hampshire are the visitors to Hove (7.00pm start).

The Sharks are currently fifth in the South Group table, but are sitting outside the quarter-final places on net run-rate alone, and a win over their south coast rivals tomorrow night in front of the Sky cameras would put them back in strong contention for a place in the last four.

Ross Taylor is the leading run-scorer for Sussex in the tournament so far and is averaging 54.00 from his eight matches, and is available for the Sharks along with skipper Luke Wright, who lies second in the Sharks’ leading run-scorers.

Chris Jordan is also available now following England duty but Sussex will be without Bangladeshi star Mustafizur Rahman who was due to play in this match; his arrival has been further delayed but it is expected that he will feature in the final three group matches.

Former Hampshire spinner Danny Briggs is in line to face his old county for the first time, after the return fixture at the Ageas Bowl was washed out last month.

Seamer Jofra Archer, who made his first-class debut for Sussex in the Tour Match with Pakistan, is included in the T20 squad for the first time.

Tomorrow’s match is completely SOLD OUT and there will be no tickets available on the gate. The match sponsor for the evening is Locate Guernsey and we thank them for their support.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

Jofra Archer
Will Beer
Danny Briggs
Craig Cachopa (wkt)
Harry Finch
George Garton
Chris Jordan
Matt Machan
Tymal Mills
Chris Nash
Phil Salt
Ajmal Shahzad
Ross Taylor
