Sussex's fine start to the Friends Provident t20 is set to be boosted by the arrival of New Zealand international Brendon McCullum later this week.

McCullum, one of just four players to have scored a Twenty20 International century, has scored 1,100 runs at international level - more than any other player and he is expected to make his Sussex debut against Kent on 9th June.

“I know that Sussex have a good record. I was at the Champions League in India last year with my New Zealand domestic team Otago Volts and saw Sussex play. They appear to have a similar attacking mentality as I do and I’m excited about contributing to their already impressive squad," McCullum said.

“Hopefully I can bring an abrasive game at the top of the order. My game revolves around aggression and putting the opposition under pressure. Short boundaries suit my game and I will be trying to send a few into the crowd for sure and add to my four T20 centuries”.

He could play at least seven matches for Sussex, the defending t20 champions, who have also been boosted by the news that wicket-keeper Matthew Prior is available for the next three matches.

Sussex beat Somerset and Middlesex to make it two wins out of two and currently sit atop the South Division.
