Sussex will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Royal London One-Day Cup this morning (11am) when they travel to The Cloudfm County Ground to take on Essex.

The Sharks head into the game off the back of securing their first win in their 50-over campaign against Worcestershire on Friday.

However, 50-over’s head coach Ian Salisbury has made one change to their winning side with the vastly experienced David Wiese coming in to replace spinner Jack Carson.

The South African all-rounder will be one of four experienced heads in the Sussex side for the match along with Travis Head, Ben Brown and Will Beer in what is a young Sharks side.

Salisbury has already handed out nine list A debuts to players during their Royal London Cup campaign.

The number of players being given their debuts has been partly down to the fact that Sussex are without 13 players.

Eight of those are competing in The Hundred in Tymal Mills, Luke Wright, Phil Salt, Ravi Bopara, Rashid Khan, George Garton, Chris Jordan, and Delray Rawlins.

Seamer Ollie Robinson is also away with England after he was recalled to the test squad.

Jofra Archer (right elbow), Jamie Atkins (right shoulder), Tom Clark (right knee) and Mitch Claydon (right shoulder) are also unavailable through injury.

But Wiese hopes himself, Head, Brown and Beer can be role models for the younger players to learn from and talk to.

He told The Argus: “I think again it is massive for the club moving forward, I mean it is all well and good giving youngsters opportunities.

“But those opportunities are all about learning and you also need guys on the field you can learn from, you can talk to and speak the game.

“To have guys like Travis, Will, Ben and myself out there who are a bit more experienced can only benefit them also just to come over and have a chat.

“We are always open to having a chat and a conversation about the game to pass on our opinions and knowledge.

“So that one of the main things for the coaches also to make sure there is a lot of youngsters and a lot of youth in the team.

“But you are still need that balance of experienced guys in the team also, hence that is why a couple of us still play.”

Sussex’s hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages look slim even if they win both of their remaining fixtures against Essex this morning and at home to Middlesex on Thursday.

They sit eighth in the table have picked up just four points from their six group games so far, however two of those points have been no results

Essex however, head into the clash knowing a win would them in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages.

They sit second in the table having already picked up eight points from their first six matches, with only Durham (nine) above them.

However, their chances of qualifying were dented on Sunday as they lost by two wickets to Durham via The Duckworth–Lewis–Stern (DLS) method.

Eagles Captain Tom Westley sits fifth on the list of top scorers in the competition, with 328 runs from his six innings, including four half centuries and a top score of 87 not out.

Meanwhile right-arm seamer, Shane Snater is Essex’s – and the competition’s – leading wicket-taker with 13 dismissals so far.

He is closely followed in third place by his teammate and veteran off-spinner Simon Harmer who has 12 wickets to his name in the competition.

Sussex’s squad to face Essex: Tom Haines (captain), Will Beer, Ben Brown, Oli Carter, James Coles, Henry Crocombe, Travis Head, Sean Hunt, Danial Ibrahim, Archie Lenham, Ali Orr, Joe Sarro, Harrison Ward, David Wiese.
