Trent Bridge, Nottingham
Trent Bridge, Nottingham

Round six of the Virtual County Championship between Nottinghamshire and Sussex is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Sussex have not done too badly and currently occupy the 4th spot in the division 2 virtual County Championship points table with 2 wins and 2 losses from 4 matches. The team has 50 points and will take on Nottinghamshire.

Nottinghamshire are placed at the 6th spot with 39 points. They have won one, drawn one while losing the other two of their four games.

Sussex won their round five match against Glamorgan by 129 runs. This was despite them being bowled out for just 110 runs in the first innings. Ollie Robinson and Ravi Bopara picked up four wickets each for them in the second essay to bring the match back in parity.

A freak century from Jofra Archer and a half-century from George Garton then put them in a winning situation. All-rounder Garton came back to pick up a 5-wicket haul in the last innings.

On the other hand, Nottinghamshire drew their last game against Middlesex, taking away 9 points from the match. Nottinghamshire did put in a real shift with Tom Moores and Ben Duckett scoring centuries.

Despite three wickets from Steven Mullaney in the first innings and four from Zak Chappell in the second innings, they fell just two wickets short of what would have been an excellent victory. With 10 wickets required on the last day, the team did a good enough job and will take a lot of confidence coming into this match.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Sussex - Philip Salt, Tom Haines, Luke Wells, Stiaan van Zyl, Harry Finch, Ben Brown, Ravi Bopara, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Danny Briggs, George Garton

Nottinghamshire - Ben Slater, Ben Duckett, Haseeb Hameed, Joe Clarke, Steven Mullaney, Chris Nash, Samit Patel, Tom Moores, Stuart Broad, Zak Chappel, Jake Ball
