Luke Wright is delighted to be back in action for Sussex Sharks.

But the captain said he had no concerns about sitting out the first two games of the Vitality Blast T20 campaign.

Sharks will look to extend their 100 record at the Oval tonight against Surrey, who have also won three out of three.

Wright saw Sussex through at Essex on Tuesday with a fabulous knock of 75 off 44 balls after great work by the bowlers and in the field.

The opener split webbing between his fingers during fielding practice in the run-up to the first games.

But he saw stand-in captain Chris Jordan lead the side to success over Gloucestershire and Hampshire.

Wright said: “I didn’t want to rush back with a hand injury and then have it with me all tournament.

“I sat with James (Kirtley, coach), looked at our team and said, ‘We’ve got a good enough team to give me a chance to rest.’

“It was the right decision to wait until I was much closer to 100% fitness.

“CJ did a great job leading the boys, which we knew he would.

“The most pleasing thing in the first two wins and again (on Tuesday) night is that different people are standing up with some amazing performances.

“It feels like everyone is off and running now, which is great.”

Ollie Robinson has been named in the squad for tonight’s game and the visit of Somerset to Hove tomorrow (7pm).

Robinson eased himself back into action after his recent England debut and associated issues with an outing for Sussex 2nd XI this week.

Sussex have sold out their first batch of T20 games at Hove.

Wright enjoyed the atmosphere generated by 2,500 against Hampshire as he watched from the dugout.

He said: “Considering it was nowhere near full capacity, I thought our crowd were excellent and really got behind the boys.

“It was nice for the lads to put on that performance because we really want to play well and put on a show in front of our home crowd.”
