The Sharks face their final two matches in the Twenty20 qualifying campaign either side of the three-day Australia game this week with Kent the opponents in both matches.

Chris Nash, who has skippered Sussex’s campaign in the shortest format, is currently the team’s leading run-scorer, whilst Michael Yardy has taken the most wickets for the Sharks.

Callum Jackson, who marked his debut behind the stumps on Sunday with three stumpings against Essex Eagles, will keep wicket again in the absence of Ben Brown who broke a finger in last week’s LV=County Championship match with Middlesex.

Tonight’s match starts at 7pm.

The Sussex squad is as follows WAT Beer, JS Gatting, RJ Hamilton-Brown, LJ Hatchett, CF Jackson (wkt), EC Joyce, CJ Liddle, MW Machan, CD Nash, MJ Rippon, DR Smith, SB Styris and MH Yardy.
