South African all-rounder David Wiese has said he felt like a hamster spinning in a wheel during his season at Sussex.

Wiese told “The volume of cricket you play in England is really high, so there’s not much time to train.

"So if you’re not in form, you can begin to feel like a hamster spinning in a wheel. You need to learn to get over your disappointments quickly and manage your expectations.

“Playing for Sussex, we had a lot of dead-rubber games because we had a pretty average season and didn’t have much to play for by the end.

"But it was so close because in the T20s we missed the play-offs only on nett run-rate and in the 50-over competition we were just one point off the quarter-finals.”
