The former New Zealand international, who returns for the Sharks’ Friends Life t20 campaign this season, wrote himself into Sussex folklore during last season’s Quarter-Final against Gloucestershire Gladiators at Hove, and needed only 37 balls to do it. The hard-hitting all-rounder showed no mercy on the visiting attack, plundering five fours and nine sixes in his unbeaten century which fired Sussex to Finals Day once more. His seam bowling also proved useful during the tournament, along with knocks of 48 and 36 against Middlesex and former county Essex respectively, and confirmed his return to Hove last October with the Club announcing he will once again play in the t20 tournament. A true globetrotter, Styris has also represented Kandurata Warriors, Northern Districts and Hobart Hurricanes in t20 tournaments over the past 12 months.
