Sussex will stage four Friday night T20s at Hove next season as they aim to go one better in the Vitality Blast.

Last season’s runners-up will hope for bumper crowds at the 1st Central County Ground against Surrey, Kent, Middlesex and Gloucestershire, the last of which is their final South Group game.

Luke Wright and his side open the season with away and home clashes against Hampshire.

The schedule also includes a trip to Somerset, the side they beat in last season’s semis.

Sharks go to Glamorgan on the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Those who watch Albion and Sussex might have a decision to make on Saturday, August 24, when Sharks are at Uxbridge playing Middlsex in the Blast.

Sussex were edged out by Worcestershire in the final last season and will have high hopes for 2019.

General admission tickets are already on sale for 2019 Finals Day, at Edgbaston on Saturday, September 21. They are priced from £46 for adults and £16 for children.
