Record-breaker Luke Wright has revealed he could heading for his final Vitality Blast campaign.

The Sussex Sharks opener misses tonight’s win-and-a-prayer clash at home to unbeaten South Group leaders Surrey (7pm) due to a persistent foot and heel injury.

Wright became the first man from any county to pass 5,000 runs in the Blast during Sunday’s game at Glamorgan, their fifth defeat in a row.

But he has been troubled by the injury throughout the campaign.

He told The Argus: “I’m going to miss the next few, if not the rest of the games.


“I’ve been trying to play because we haven’t had the best of campaigns.

“I’ve been trying to help out but it got to the point where, even though I got runs the other day, it was getting worse and worse.”

Sussex probably need four wins out of four and helpful results from elsewhere if they are to reach the knockout stage.

Wright is under contract for one more season and says that could be his last.

The 37-year-old former England international told The Argus: “I’m not looking past next year, really, to see where we go.

“But I think that will most likely be me done.”
