Sharks Clash With Aussies Sells Out

All 6,000 tickets for Sussex's 50-over game with Australia next week have been sold.

The Sharks take on the reigning World Champions on Thursday 7th June ahead of the Southern Hemisphere side's series of One-Day and T20 games with England this summer.

It's the first game for the visitors under new Head Coach Justin Langer. The former Aussie batsman was appointed last month after Darren Lehmann's resignation in the wake of the ball tampering controversy during their test match series against South Africa in March.

Langer’s Sussex counterpart and former team mate, Jason Gillespie is taking the match very seriously: “We want to win this game. We want to test ourselves against the best. We know we're going to be underdogs but we're going to fight hard and try and win. 

“It's always been a bit of a frustration of mine seeing touring side comes over and the opposition picking teams that are well below full strength. I've got no problem resting the odd player, but this it's a great opportunity for our lads to test their skills against an international side."

Gates open at 12.30pm, with play starting at 2pm. As this is a sold-out match, spectators are requested to arrive early to ensure a speedy entry into the ground.

No tickets will be available on the gate, but supporters who have missed out can still watch every ball via the Sussex Cricket Match Centre live stream.
