Sussex are straight back into LV=County Championship action again this week as the Division One leaders travel to Lord’s to take on Middlesex, in a match that begins tomorrow (12.00pm start Day One, 11.00am all other days).

Chris Jordan (pictured) recorded match figures of 9 for 155 as he and Steve Magoffin, who took six wickets in the match, both currently have 34 wickets this term.
Sussex can welcome back Matt Prior as he is available for this match following England’s Test Series with New Zealand, whilst Chris Liddle boosts the seam bowling options.
