After a period of nearly three weeks without any first-team cricket, Sussex now face a run of three LV=CC matches as they aim to finish the campaign strongly, and this week is the last chance for supporters to see Sussex in action at Hove during the 2014 season.

The squad sees Chris Jordan return to the squad following England’s international summer with India, whilst Michael Yardy is also welcomed back after a lengthy lay-off. The left-hander has been out of action since tearing his bicep in Sussex’s NatWest T20 Blast match with Glamorgan back in May.

The Sussex squad is as follows: BC Brown, C Cachopa, LJ Hatchett, CJ Jordan, EC Joyce, J Lewis, SJ Magoffin, CD Nash, SA Piolet, LWP Wells, LJ Wright, MH Yardy and SAA Zaidi.
