Delray Rawlins will miss the Sussex squad of 16 players who are embarking on a 12-day tour made up of warm-weather training and four 50-over friendly matches.
Sussex’s opposition is made up of both local and fellow touring sides. The first match takes place next Wednesday March 14th against the Western Province Academy at the Vineyard Oval.
The same ground is then the venue for two matches against Middlesex on Sunday March 18th and Monday March 19th.
Durham MCCU are the opponents for Sussex’s final match at Claremont Cricket Club on Wednesday March 21st.
The group return to Hove on Thursday 22nd March.
Touring alongside the professional squad are off-spinning all-rounder, Jack Carson and two left-arm seamers, Adam Barton and Will Sheffield. Jack and Will are on the Sussex boys’ Academy and Adam is an MCC Young Cricketer who made two first team appearances for Sussex in 2017.
Due to other cricketing commitments, some of the professional squad will not be joining the tour. Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills and David Wiese are involved with the Pakistan Super League, Laurie Evans and Rawlins will be in the Caribbean for the ECB’s North-South series, Stiaan van Zyl is playing domestic cricket in South Africa and Stuart Whittingham is playing for Scotland in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe.
