LV=County Championship action returns to the County tomorrow as Sussex welcome Durham to the annual Arundel Festival of Cricket for their latest Division One clash (11am start).

Sussex will be aiming to put pressure on the leading sides in the table with a win at the Arundel Castle Ground against a Durham outfit who are yet to taste victory in the four-day game this season.

The rain frustrated Sussex in their latest LV=CC encounter as only two days’ play was possible against Warwickshire at Edgbaston, although Monty Panesar returned to first-team action with four wickets.

Ben Brown replaces Matt Prior behind the stumps who prepares for England’s First Test against South Africa which begins later this week, whilst Ed Joyce is in action for Ireland in their Twenty20 series with Bangladesh.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

Amjad Khan

JE Anyon

BC Brown (wkt)

JS Gatting

MW Goodwin

Naveed Arif Gondal

SJ Magoffin

CD Nash

MS Panesar

LWP Wells

KO Wernars

LJ Wright
