Sharks’ eyes on semi-final prize

Sussex Sharks go head to head with Kent Spitfires today (Bank Holiday Monday) at Canterbury with the prize for victory a semi-final place in the Clydesdale Bank 40 competition, whilst also keeping the dream of a Lord’s final this season alive (1.45pm start).

Group C is the tightest of all three CB40 groups with the Spitfires a point ahead of the Sharks at the summit of the table, but the two points that Sussex would gain if they could triumph in Canterbury would see them win the group and ensure their place in the semi-finals.

Sussex can welcome back Matt Prior into the squad following his return from Interrnational duty with England’s Test series against South Africa.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

Amjad Khan

WAT Beer

BC Brown

JS Gatting

MW Goodwin

EC Joyce (c)

CJ Liddle

CD Nash

MS Panesar

MJ Prior

KO Wernars

LJ Wright

MH Yardy
