Ishant Sharma has been ruled out of Sussex’s home fixture against Middlesex.

But George Garton and Abi Sakande are both in the 13-man party after recovering from injuries.

Ishant fell heavily in the outfield during his side’s rain-affected draw at home to Gloucestershire and hurt his shoulder.

Garton and Sakande are now competing to share new-ball duties with Ollie Robinson.

Middlesex also have absentees in their attack.

Steven Finn and Toby Roland-Jones are both absent.

Sussex are chasing a first win of the Specsavers County Championship division two campaign after three draws.

Sussex: from Brown, Briggs, Burgess, Garton, Finch, Robinson, Sakande, Salt, van Zyl, Whittingham, Wiese, Wells, Wright.
