Sussex take on Yorkshire on Monday in a crucial Friends Provident Trophy match, the result of which could go a long way to determining which side joins Gloucestershire in the quarter-finals.

The match takes place at Hove and the match takes on added significance after Sussex's last match against Gloucestershire, also at Hove, was washed out.

“Looking at recent years, five wins is normally enough to get to the quarter-finals," captain Mike Yardy said.

"All we’re thinking about, however, is beating Yorkshire on Monday and we’ll reassess the situation then.  It was shame that Friday’s match was called off, but we can’t do anything about the weather and we earned a valuable point.”

Sussex: Ragheb Aga, Yasir Arafat, Will Beer, Ben Brown, Joe Gatting, Murray Goodwin, Rory Hamilton-Brown, Carl Hopkinson, Ed Joyce, James Kirtley, Robin Martin-Jenkins, Luke Wright, Mike Yardy (captain)
