PREVIEW: Sussex entertain Nottinghamshire as County Club turns 175 years old


Matt Prior looks set to play his first Championship game since the opening match of the season

Sussex return to The County Ground, Hove from tomorrow as they prepare to take on Nottinghamshire in the LV=County Championship (11.00am start).

The match forms part of the Mayo Wynne Baxter Festival of Cricket at Hove with Sussex celebrating their 175th anniversary on Sunday.

Sussex were frustrated by the rain this week against Middlesex as no play was possible on any of the four days at Merchant Taylors' School. However with very few results possible around Division One, Sussex still remain 22 points shy of the summit, and a single point behind opponents Nottinghamshire.

Chris Nash and Matt Prior were both welcomed back from injury in lastnight's NatWest T20 Blast match and form part of the squad along with Michael Yardy, who will be assessed after pulling a bicep at Glamorgan.

A reminder that all tickets for tomorrow’s play at Hove are priced at only £1.75 with the 175th Anniversary celebrations taking place throughout the day. Click HERE for more details. 

The Sussex squad is as follows:

JE Anyon
BC Brown
RJ Hamilton-Brown
EC Joyce (capt)
J Lewis
MW Machan
SJ Magoffin
CD Nash
SA Piolet
MJ Prior
LWP Wells
LJ Wright
MH Yardy
SAA Zaidi
