PREVIEW: The Only Way is Essex for Sharks as Sussex head to Chelmsford

09-May-2017

Sussex Sharks are aiming to continue their fine form in the Royal London One-Day Cup tomorrow, when they head to Chelmsford to face Essex Eagles (2.00pm start).

The Sharks are looking to make it four on the bounce having won their last three games in the competition, their latest success a comfortable 95-run victory over rivals Surrey at The 1st Central County Ground on Sunday.

Chris Nash (82) and Harry Finch (61) both made half-centuries as the Sharks made 300 for 8 from their 50 overs, before going on to bowl out Surrey for 205 in the 42nd over with David Wiese claiming figures of 4 for 29.

The Sharks are sitting in second spot in the South Group table, a point shy of leaders Somerset. Finch and Laurie Evans are currently neck and neck at the top of the Sussex batting charts, both having scored over 200 runs so far, whilst Wiese is the leading Sharks wicket-taker with 11 scalps.

Sussex have named an unchanged 13-man squad for tomorrow with Michael Burgess, who claimed three catches on Sunday including a stunning effort to dismiss Ben Foakes, continuing to deputise for gloveman Ben Brown who is still ruled out with the fractured finger he suffered at Kent.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

Jofra Archer
Will Beer
Danny Briggs
Michael Burgess (wkt)
Laurie Evans
Harry Finch
George Garton
Chris Nash
Ajmal Shahzad
Jerome Taylor
Stiaan van Zyl
David Wiese
