Southern Brave will call the venue home during The Hundred with the team taking on Oval Invincibles on Friday 31st July and Manchester Originals on Wednesday 12th August at the ground.

The 1st Central County Ground will also host the finals day of the premier women’s domestic competition for a fourth consecutive year. The Hundred finals take place at Hove on Friday 14th August.

Sussex and England star Danni Wyatt can’t wait for the summer ahead at her home ground: “As a Sussex player I love playing at Hove and it’s become a real home for women’s cricket.

“The Kia Super League finals days were always a big hit and hopefully The Hundred final as well as this year’s internationals will be the same.

“The crowds are always good and they get behind the team so I’m really looking forward to it.”
