Cricket returns to Hove for the 2015 season

Season kicks off with friendlies at Hove

Cricket returns to The County Ground tomorrow for the 2015 season, as Sussex welcome Leeds/Bradford MCCU to Hove for a first-class three-day match (11.00am start).

Sussex completed their pre-season tour of the UAE last week and will be looking for some vital match practice on English soil ahead of the opening LV=County Championship match with Hampshire on Sunday 12th April. There will also be a two-day friendly match with Surrey next week at Hove.

Pace duo Tymal Mills and Ajmal Shahzad, recruited from Essex and Nottinghamshire respectively over the winter, are set to make their first-class debuts for Sussex.

However, Lewis Hatchett misses this game through injury, while James Anyon will miss the opening weeks of the season as he recovers from a knee problem, and Matt Prior continues his rehabilitation from his achilles injury.

Entrance is FREE for all three days of the match.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

BC Brown (wkt)
C Cachopa
HZ Finch
ME Hobden
EC Joyce (capt)
SJ Magoffin
TS Mills
CD Nash
A Shahzad
LWP Wells
LJ Wright
MH Yardy
SAA Zaidi
