Sussex have named a strong 15-man squad for the Champions League Twenty20, which kicks off in India next month.

The squad boasts a number of players with international experience, with Yasir Arafat, Piyush Chawla and Dwayne Smith boosting their squad alongside the likes of Ed Joyce, Luke Wright, Michael Yardy and James Kirtley.

It was revealed earlier in the week that England wicket-keeper Matthew Prior would not be travelling with the squad as he takes a rest ahead of England's busy winter, which includes a tour of South Africa and the ICC World Twenty20 in the Caribbean.

Sussex will take on New South Wales and the Diamond Eagles in Group B of the competition, which begins on 8th October in Hyderabad although Sussex's group games, on 10th and 13th October, are in Delhi.

Sussex: Michael Yardy (captain), Yasir Arafat, Will Beer, Ben Brown, Piyush Chawla, Joe Gatting, Rory Hamilton-Brown, Andrew Hodd, Ed Joyce, Chad Keegan, James Kirtley, Robin Martin-Jenkins, Chris Nash, Dwayne Smith, Luke Wright
