PREVIEW: Sussex look to continue winning run at Lord’s

09-Aug-2017

Sussex Sharks have announced a 15-man squad for Thursday evening’s NatWest T20 Blast fixture against Middlesex at Lord’s (10th August, 6.15pm start).

Luke Wright and Ollie Robinson are added to the 13 that were named for the previous two matches against Surrey and Kent Spitfires.

Wright returns to the squad having missed Sussex’s previous four matches with a sore back.

Squad:
Taylor (captain)
Archer
Beer
Briggs
Brown
Evans
Garton
Jordan
Mills
Nash
Robinson
Salt
van Zyl
Wiese
Wright

Speaking ahead of the trip to London, Head Coach, Mark Davis said: “We travel to Lord’s in good form and are looking forward to taking on Middlesex.

“We have a number of players in great form and the boys are excited by the challenge of playing in front of a full house at the Home of Cricket.”

The Sharks go into the match in high-spirits having followed two resounding victories in the Blast at the end of last week with yesterday’s win in the Specsavers County Championship away at Worcestershire.

Chris Nash is the Sharks’ form player, having plundered 196 runs and been dismissed only twice in his previous four innings. 

Sussex Sharks have won eight of their previous ten completed T20 matches against Middlesex. The rain prevented a result being reached when the two sides met earlier this season at Hove.

With four matches remaining in the group stage, qualification for the quarter final stages remains in Sussex’s hands.

Sitting in fifth place in the South Group on ten points, one point behind Hampshire in fourth, Sussex have a game in hand over three of the teams above them.

Thursday night’s fixture is followed by a home match against Gloucestershire on Friday, a visit to The Oval to play Surrey on Sunday, before a clash with Essex Eagles at The 1st Central County Ground, Hove finishes the group stage on Friday 18th August.

Tickets for both remaining home games are available online HERE.
