Sussex skipper Luke Wright is hoping his side can pick up where they left on Sunday.

The Sharks play their third game in five days when they travel to Lords to take on Middlesex this afternoon and are looking to make it back-to-back wins after their thrilling victory against Hampshire with just one ball to spare on Sunday at Hove.

Wright, who starred with the bat against the Royals, hitting 82 runs off just 55 deliveries, is hoping that the Sharks can get a run of good results going in the Blast.

He said: “It’s always nice to play at Lord’s. It’s always special.

“We know it’s a shortened competition this year, so the earlier you can get on a roll, the better.

“Hopefully, if we can get another couple of wins before the break (when Sussex face Surrey in the Bob Willis Trophy this weekend), that would be great advantage.

“I think for all of us, we felt very rusty going into this competition so to already have a win, and an outing against Surrey despite it raining, is really good for us.

“Hopefully with a few more games under our belt, we can keep performing well.”

Sussex have made one change to their 15-man side which take on Middlesex at Lords with 19-year-old spinner Jack Carson coming into replace Stuart Meaker.

The Sharks were boosted on Sunday by the return of South African all-rounder David Weise to the squad and despite him not bowling a single delivery, he chipped in finishing 43 not out in the run chase.

A win for Sussex would see maintain their one-point lead at the top of the South Group with them being the only side to win a game in the group so far.
