There will also be the opportunity to see how Sussex’s exciting young fast bowlers, including Jofra Archer and George Garton, fare against one of the most destructive batting line-ups on the planet… and vice versa. The encounter is sure to be an intense affair, with Australia using the match as preparation for their five match one-day international (ODI) series against England that starts less than a week later. Adding further intrigue, the match will see two teammates from the legendary Australian side of the 1990s and early 2000s come up against each other in their coaching roles. Former Australian fast bowler and veteran of 97 ODIs, Jason Gillespie was appointed Sussex’s Head Coach in November.
