PREVIEW: Sussex head to Horsham for Festival of Cricket


Chris Jordan returns to the Sussex squad for the clash with Warwickshire at Horsham

Sussex make their annual pilgrimage to the Horsham Cricket and Sports Club this week, as they take on Warwickshire in the LV=County Championship from tomorrow (11.00am start).

The match forms part of the Horsham Festival of Cricket, which also includes Sussex's opening Royal London One-Day Cup match.

Sussex beat Northamptonshire at Hove in their last Championship outing, beating the bottom side by an innings and 85 runs. Luke Wright hit 158 in that match, whilst Steve Magoffin took eight wickets, and the Aussie seamer will be relishing a return to the scene of his magical 12 for 31 last season.

The squad sees new signing Craig Cachopa and Chris Jordan added to the side that beat Northants, as the latter returns from the England squad. James Anyon, Rory Hamilton-Brown and Michael Yardy are all still ruled out through injury, whilst Matt Prior is on England duty.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

BC Brown (wkt)
C Cachopa
LJ Hatchett
ME Hobden
CJ Jordan
EC Joyce (capt)
SJ Magoffin
CD Nash
SA Piolet
JC Tredwell
LWP Wells
LJ Wright
SAA Zaidi
