Sharks’ unchanged squad for local derby

Sussex Sharks begin their home campaign in the Friends Life t20 under the floodlights this evening (Thursday June 14) when they welcome Hampshire Royals to The PROBIZ County Ground, Hove (7.10pm start).

It was somewhat of a false start on Tuesday night when the Sharks’ opener with Kent Spitfires was abandoned at Canterbury without a ball being bowled so tonight will be the first action in this season’s tournament for both sides.

Sussex have named an unchanged squad from earlier in the week for tonight’s televised encounter with both overseas players Rusty Theron and Scott Styris aiming to make their FL t20 debut for the Sharks.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

Amjad Khan

WAT Beer

BC Brown (wkt)

JS Gatting

MW Goodwin

CJ Liddle

MW Machan

CD Nash

SB Styris

J Theron

LJ Wright

MH Yardy (capt)
