Sussex Sharks have announced the squad for their latest Friends Life t20 encounter this evening (Friday June 22) as they take on Middlesex Panthers at The PROBIZ County Ground, Hove (7.10pm start).

The Sharks will be aiming to complete a swift ‘double’ over the Panthers following an 11 run victory against them at Lord’s on Sunday. Sussex are the only unbeaten side in the South Group, lying level on points at the top with both Surrey and Essex Eagles, with the latter travelling to Hove on Sunday.

Scott Styris, on his FL t20 debut for Sussex hit 48 whilst Murray Goodwin made 43 at Lord’s on Sunday, before Chris Liddle’s career-best t20 figures of 5 for 17 ensured Middlesex fell short of their target.

England wicketkeeper-batsman Matt Prior is currently out for the Sharks due to an Achilles problem whilst Naveed Arif Gondal is added to the squad from Sunday. The Panthers can include former Sussex recruits Ollie Rayner and Tom Smith in their squad.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

Amjad Khan

WAT Beer

BC Brown (wkt)

JS Gatting

MW Goodwin

Naveed Arif Gondal

CJ Liddle

MW Machan

CD Nash

SB Styris

J Theron

LJ Wright
