Sussex Sharks are straight back into Royal London One-Day Cup action today as they take on Surrey at the Kia Oval.

The Sharks will be buoyed by their first victory of the campaign last night as they beat Durham by three wickets to pull off a remarkable win at The County Ground.

Will Beer and Yasir Arafat put together an unbroken stand of 97 from 88 balls, a record Sussex eighth-wicket stand in List A cricket.

Beer hit his highest score in the format for Sussex with an unbeaten 45, and Arafat followed up his three wickets earlier in the day to claim the man-of-the-match Award.

Sussex’s squad remains unchanged from last night’s match against a Surrey side who also got off the mark in the Group B table yesterday as they tied with Kent.

The Sussex squad is as follows: WAT Beer, BC Brown, C Cachopa, LJ Hatchett, EC Joyce, CJ Liddle, MW Machan, CD Nash, SA Piolet, LWP Wells, LJ Wright, SAA Zaidi and Yasir Arafat.
