PREVIEW: Sussex look to build on impressive start

23-Apr-2013


Sussex will look to continue their good opening form in Division One of the LV=County Championship tomorrow as they travel to The Kia Oval to take on rivals Surrey (11.00am start).

Having beaten Yorkshire at Headingley in their opening fixture by an innings and 12 runs, Sussex made the perfect start to the new campaign and will be aiming to continue their run against a Surrey side which drew with Somerset in their first match of the season last week.

Sussex can welcome back England wicketkeeper-batsman Matt Prior to their squad following his heroics during the recent New Zealand tour. They can also include former Surrey recruits Rory Hamilton-Brown and Chris Jordan, who made a scintillating start to his Sussex career with eight wickets at Headingley.

Black armbands will be worn for the first day of the match by the Sussex side in honour of Craig Botting who tragically passed away recently. Craig was a Sussex member and also played for local team Balcombe Cricket Club alongside his friend and Sussex keeper Ben Brown..

The Sussex squad is as follows:

JE Anyon
BC Brown
RJ Hamilton-Brown
CJ Jordan
EC Joyce (capt)
SJ Magoffin
AS Miller
CD Nash
MS Panesar
MJ Prior
LWP Wells
MH Yardy
