Sussex cannot wait to get their T20 campaign back in business after another weather frustration.

Last night’s home fixture against Glamorgan in the Vitality Blast was called off little more than an hour before the scheduled 7pm start.

Although conditions at Hove were dry and breezy, rain the previous day and into yesterday morning had left the outfield saturated.

The abandonment followed similar disappointment at the Oval and at home to Somerset last week.

But this was arguably the most frustrating as the afternoon weather seemed to have given a good chance of play at what is a fast-drying venue.

Although the call-off was well-publicised by Sussex as soon as possible, some ticket-holders were still arriving close to 7pm, presumably having not even checked for news of a cancellation.

Some early evening sunshine had even broken through by the time the Glamorgan team coach arrived to pick up the visiting squad.

Sussex remain on three wins along with three call-offs.

They will be disappointed to have been sidelined since those quickfire successes over Gloucestershire, Hampshire and Essex.

Spinner Will Beer said: “We have been really well-prepared and we are all just having a good time, enjoying ourselves.

“We are itching to get out there and play so it’s a bit frustrating at the moment.”

Beer revealed members of the Championship squad who attempted to train at Hove yesterday morning had warned their T20 colleagues that their game could be in doubt.

Sussex will be keen to get back out there this weekend.

They are due to face Gloucestershire on Friday and Surrey on Sunday, both at Hove.

George Garton, who has been selected for the England ODI squad, remains available until after Friday’s game, when he will the depart to join the national set-up.

Chris Jordan is away with England’s T20 specialists.
