PREVIEW: Sussex head to Edgbaston as Championship continues


Steve Magoffin took eight wickets in the victory over Middlesex at Hove

The LV=County Championship Division One continues this weekend when Sussex travel to Edgbaston, to face Warwickshire from Sunday onwards (11.00am start).

Sussex made an excellent start to the season this week with a comprehensive victory over Middlesex at The County Ground, beating their opponents by an innings and 127 runs, despite losing a day to rain. Matt Prior starred with a knock of 125 whilst Steve Magoffin took eight wickets in the match. Debutant Jon Lewis and James Anyon were also amongst the wickets.

Chris Jordan makes his return to the Sussex squad for the Warwickshire trip after being rested at the request of England for the opening match, however Prior misses out this time around due to his troublesome achilles. Young all-rounder Harry Finch is also added to the squad, but Chris Nash remains sidelined as he recovers from a ruptured appendix.

Warwickshire are yet to play in this season’s Championship and warmed-up for the new season by drawing with Oxford MCCU this week.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

JE Anyon
BC Brown (wkt)
HZ Finch
RJ Hamilton-Brown
CJ Jordan
EC Joyce (capt)
J Lewis
MW Machan
SJ Magoffin
SA Piolet
LWP Wells
MH Yardy
SAA Zaidi
