SQUAD: Sussex name squad for their LV=County Championship opener04-Apr-2012
Sussex will begin their brand new campaign in Division One of the LV=County Championship tomorrow when they head to the Kia Oval to take on local rivals Surrey (11.00am start).
It was an impressive strong finish to the LV=CC season in 2011 which saw Sussex finish in 5th position, whilst the hosts return to the top-flight after ending last season in Division Two’s second spot.
Sussex have been busy preparing for the beginning of the new LV=CC season with their pre-season tour of Dubai, before returning home to face neighbouring Hampshire at The PROBIZ County Ground last weekend in a friendly.
There is a twelve-man squad heading to the Oval which sees both Monty Panesar and Matt Prior missing due to their involvement with the England team in Sri Lanka.
Luke Wright is playing in the Indian Premier League for Pune Warriors whilst overseas signing Steve Magoffin will not be available until the second match of the season.
The Sussex squad is as follows:
BC Brown (wkt)
Naveed Arif Gondal
MH Yardy (capt)
