Sussex Sharks play their second match in the Royal London One-Day Cup tournament today when they take on Warwickshire at Edgbaston (2.00pm start).

The Sharks head to Birmingham in good heart after completing their first LV=County Championship ‘double’ over the Midlanders since the 1960 season last week at Horsham, and in the process vastly improved their position in the Division One standings.

Former Warwickshire man Steffan Piolet starred in Sussex’s opening One-Day Cup encounter on Sunday, as he took two wickets and scored an unbeaten 63 against Nottinghamshire Outlaws.

Sussex’s injury list though now includes Luke Wright, who picked up a side strain in his record-breaking unbeaten knock of 153 against Essex Eagles last Friday in the NatWest T20 Blast.

Chris Jordan is unavailable due to England’s Test Match with India whilst James Anyon, Rory Hamilton-Brown, Matt Prior and Michael Yardy all remain sidelined, but Yasir Arafat returns as overseas player as he recovers from a groin problem.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

WAT Beer

BC Brown (wkt)

C Cachopa

HZ Finch

LJ Hatchett

EC Joyce (capt)

CJ Liddle

MW Machan

CD Nash

SA Piolet

LWP Wells

SAA Zaidi

Yasir Arafat
