Sussex are hoping to get their pre-season match preparations underway tomorrow when Surrey are the visitors to The 1st Central County Ground (11.45am start).

The match had originally been scheduled to begin today at Hove but due to poor weather, the game will now begin on Thursday and be a three-day match running through to Saturday.

It is the first of three scheduled friendly matches for Sussex, which all take place at Hove. Somerset are the visitors next week (Monday and Tuesday) before Hampshire travel along the South Coast on Thursday and Friday.

With the format of the match flexible, all of Sussex’s available squad will play some part in the match.

Chris Jordan and Tymal Mills have been involved in Sussex’s pre-season preparations but won’t be available for the match as they head to the Indian Premier League.

David Wiese and Stiaan van Zyl remain in South Africa currently as they continue their domestic Momentum One-Day Cup campaign.

Luke Wells and Matt Machan are currently recovering from knee and wrist injuries respectively and Sussex hope they will be available to play a part in forthcoming pre-season matches.

Entrance is FREE and play is set to begin at 11.45am, and 11.00am on the subsequent days.

Sussex's available squad for the match:

Jofra Archer
Will Beer
Danny Briggs
Ben Brown (wkt)
Laurie Evans
Harry Finch
George Garton
Steve Magoffin
Chris Nash
