Sussex head coach Jason Gillespie has returned home to Australia.

The ECB have annnounced that no professional cricket will be played in England and Wales until at least May 28 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gillespie posted on social media: "Due to current events it was decided by @SussexCCC and myself that it would be best if I was back home in Australia. Hence I am now home and in isolation for the next 2 weeks. Having just been o/s, I urge everyone to please stay at home. It is the ONLY option for all of us."

He also praised the way the club has dealt with the situation.

He also posted: "Our club @SussexCCC have been amazing looking after all our players and staff. We cut short our pre-season trip to Cape Town and the club's absolute priority has always been staff and players that were home and away. Our club has strong leadership with Rob Andrew at the helm."
