Welcome to Sussex Sharks’ Friends Life t20 campaign – and a chance to see part of it for free.
Their mouthwatering programme of group games begins tonight (Thursday) at The PROBIZ County Ground, Hove, as Sussex look to replicate their t20 trophy win of two years ago.
The opening game sees the Sharks welcome Essex Eagles and once again the big names will be on show for the campaign.
The Sharks can boast England stars Matt Prior, Luke Wright and Michael Yardy as well overseas players Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, Wayne Parnell and Umar Gul who will all play their part as Sussex look to head towards Finals Day.
The opposition will have a few big guns of their own throughout the tournament.
After tonight’s opener Sussex entertain Middlesex Panthers, Somerset, Kent Spitfires, Gloucestershire Gladiators, Glamorgan Dragons, Hampshire Royals and Surrey Lions.
Hopefully they will then be able to look forward to a home quarter-final, with Finals Day at Edgbaston then only one match away.
Watching t20 cricket is like nothing else and even whether you’ve never been to a game before or you never miss a match, you’re sure to be entertained at The PROBIZ County Ground this summer with sixes disappearing into the crowd and the stumps being splattered as well as plenty of other entertainment to make it an exciting evening out for all.
Sussex won the t20 in 2009, beating Somerset in the final, and missed out on last summer’s finals day at the Rose Bowl only when they lost to Notts in the quarter-finals. They’ll be anxious to taste more finals day success this time around.
