The ECB today announced the full itinerary including tour matches for Sri Lanka’s tour of England next summer, which includes a T20 match against Sussex at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Hove, on Sunday 18th May 2014.
Ahead of next season’s NatWest T20 International against England at the Kia Oval, the tourists will head to Hove in this T20 warm-up game.
Following on from the success of the Australia game here at Hove this season, Sussex will again be looking forward to a big crowd and welcoming international stars who are looking to fully prepare before they take on England.
Chief Executive of Sussex Cricket Zac Toumazi said, “We’re delighted to be awarded this T20 match against Sri Lanka. There was a real buzz around the ground this season when we hosted the Australians and we’ll be looking forward to another great atmosphere for this match.
