Sussex Name Squad For Start Of Title Defence

Sussex have named their squad to take on Hampshire at the Rose Bowl which begins on Wednesday, April 16th, with Jason Lewry unable to take his place after injuring a knee in the MCC match.

Sussex ended up drawing the season-opening game at Lord's but fought back strongly after being bowled out cheaply on day one with Luke Wright (155 not out) registering a first-class personal best.

Mushtaq Ahmed and Murray Goodwin, who missed the MCC match, are named in the squad.
