TEAM NEWS: Finch selected for First-Class Debut for Sussex03-Sep-2013
Sussex’s Harry Finch has become the County’s 711th First-Class Player as he has been selected for today’s LV=County Championship Division One clash with Durham at the Emirates ICG.
The 18 year-old Hastings-born all-rounder has only featured once for Sussex so far in the first-team, a Yorkshire Bank 40 match against the Netherlands earlier this season that was subsequently rained off. But Finch has been a regular in the England Under-19 setup recently and hit an unbeaten century against Bangladesh Under 19’s at Leicestershire’s Grace Road ground last month.
