PREVIEW: Sussex begin Arundel Festival of Cricket with Somerset clash


Luke Wright in action when T20 last came to Arundel Castle

Sussex Sharks make their annual trip to the picturesque surroundings of Arundel Castle this weekend, as they begin the Festival of Cricket with a NatWest T20 Blast encounter with Somerset on Sunday (2.30pm start).

The Arundel Castle ground, regarded as one of the finest places to watch cricket in the country, hosts T20 for the first time in several seasons tomorrow to kick off the festival week which continues on Monday with the LV=County Championship match against Yorkshire.

Somerset are level on points with the Sharks in the South Group table although the visitors have a game in hand. Sunday's clash promises to be another mouthwatering T20 affair with Sussex's big-hitters such as Luke Wright and Rory Hamilton-Brown going head to head with the west country side's big names Craig Kieswetter, James Hildreth and Peter Trego who are equally capable of clearing the ropes.

Sussex are still currently missing Michael Yardy and Jon Lewis through injury, and the squad remains unchanged.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

JE Anyon
WAT Beer
BC Brown (wkt)
HZ Finch
RJ Hamilton-Brown
EC Joyce (capt)
CJ Liddle
MW Machan
CD Nash
SA Piolet
LJ Wright
Yasir Arafat
SAA Zaidi
