Sussex v Derbyshire preview

Back on the pitch tomorrow (actually today...) in a tough game against Sussex in the Pro 40. Sorry about the late post but we were all in Glasgow seeing Canadian rockers Rush tonight. Three hour gig, great musicianship and well worth every penny, even if I'm a little hoarse right now...

No doubt about it, we will have to be at the top of our game to win this one, with Sussex welcoming Michael Yardy back since their defeat at Derby to reinforce an already strong side. Lou Vincent could also appear, so we'll have work to do.

Thankfully we're welcoming back Steffan Jones and Jon Clare for this one and I would expect the following line up:

Hughes, Khawaja, Durston, Smith, Madsen, Park, Sutton, Clare, Rafiq, Jones, Groenewald

There'd be no disgrace in losing this one, but only a fool would write off this Derbyshire side following their form of recent weeks. The run has to end sometime, but whoever does so will need to earn it.

Good luck lads.

I really hope we can win this game. You may be right about the starting line up. I just wish Gary Park was re instated at number 3,which is where he scored his runs during his first season and Hughes bats at 4,for similar reasons. Park batted anywhere except number 3 last season and Hughes seems to be following suit this time around. If you pick a player to play,then bat him where he is best suited. Good luck to the lads today!.
