PREVIEW: Sharks welcome Surrey for latest Royal London One-Day Cup tussle

06-May-2017

Laurie Evans' excellent knock of 134 not out helped Sussex to victory over Kent at Canterbury on Friday

Sussex Sharks will aim to continue their good form in the Royal London One-Day Cup tomorrow when they welcome rivals Surrey to The 1st Central County Ground, Hove (11.00am start).

The Sharks made it back-to-back wins in the tournament by sealing a memorable run chase to defeat Kent Spitfires yesterday at Canterbury. Having been set 332 to win, Luke Wright (64) and Chris Nash (39) set the tone by putting on 80 for the first wicket before Laurie Evans blasted his maiden List A century, hitting 134 not out from only 86 balls, as he and Harry Finch (80) built a match-winning stand of 207 for the fourth wicket.

Sussex now sit in third place in the South Group table, only three points shy of leaders Somerset and a point ahead of tomorrow’s opponents Surrey, who defeated Middlesex by seven wickets yesterday at the Kia Oval.

Ben Brown suffered a finger injury during the Kent’s innings at Canterbury which resulted in Harry Finch stepping in behind the stumps temporarily. Brown is ruled out of tomorrow’s game so Michael Burgess, who featured for Sussex in pre-season and more recently in the Second Eleven, comes into the squad.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

Jofra Archer
Will Beer
Danny Briggs
Michael Burgess (wkt)
Laurie Evans
Harry Finch
George Garton
Chris Nash
Ajmal Shahzad
Jerome Taylor
Stiaan van Zyl
David Wiese
