PREVIEW: Sussex welcome Yorkshire to Hove10-Sep-2013
Sussex return to The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Hove and play their penultimate match this season when they entertain Yorkshire in the LV=County Championship Division One, from tomorrow (10.30am start).
It’s five months since Sussex last met Yorkshire in any competition following victory over them at Headingley on the opening day of the season, and they will be hoping for a repeat performance this time around, as they lie 16 points shy of their visitors in the Division One table.
The hosts can welcome back skipper Ed Joyce from Ireland duty whilst Matt Machan also returns from playing for Scotland against his captain in the One-Day International series. Matt Prior returns to the Sussex squad following the successful Ashes series this summer. Luke Wright and Chris Jordan are missing though with the England One-Day International squad currently taking on Australia.
Left-arm spinner Ashar Zaidi is included in the squad on non-contract terms following his trial with the Second Eleven. Andy Miller boosts the seam-bowling options, whilst Sussex are hoping that leading wicket-taker Steve Magoffin shakes off a virus and is fit to play.
The Sussex squad is as follows:
EC Joyce (capt)
