PREVIEW: Sussex name squad for trip to Yorkshire

09-Apr-2013


Sussex begin their 2013 LV=County Championship Division One campaign tomorrow when they take on Yorkshire at Headingley, in an 11.00am start.

Following their pre-season trip to Dubai and warm-up games against Hampshire and Loughborough MCCU at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Sussex travel to Yorkshire to open their Championship season against a side who were promoted from Division Two last season.

Sussex can include three new faces in their squad since the end of last summer, as Chris Jordan and Andrew Miller aim to make their competitive debuts for the County, whilst the returning Rory Hamilton-Brown is included following his winter move back to Hove from Surrey.

Monty Panesar, who returns to Sussex action following the winter tour with England to New Zealand, has bowled more LV=CC maidens (520) than any other bowler on the circuit since moving to Hove.

Leg-spinner Will Beer is currently unavailable due to injury to both his ankle and hamstring, however seamer Lewis Hatchett has now fully recovered from his recent knee injury having come through the pre-season programme, and is set to stake a claim for a place in the squad in future matches.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

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