Ben Brown has given cricket fans a laugh on what should have been the opening day of the season.

The Sussex captain has posted a video recreating the pre-match coin toss in what looks like his back garden.

He is suitably dressed in whites and the club blazer.

One assumes Brown looked up rather than down in opting to bat first on a wicket which has more than a tinge of green to it.




He might also be forgetting Sussex were 40-5 at Hove after the first hour of play on the opening day last season!

Sussex should have been playing Durham today in what is fabulous weather at the 1st Central County Ground.

They are still hoping to get some cricket in this season – including Championship action.
