Sussex have included two trialist fast-medium bowlers in their squad to face Middlesex.

Aristedes Karvelas and Brad Currie will be in the 14-man party at Lord’s in the County Championship.

Karvelas, 28, knows the famous St John’s Wood venue well as a former MCC young cricketer.

The right-armer was born in Johannesburg and has played 2nd XI cricket for Kent and Somerset.

He bowled three overs for just ten runs when he opened the bowling in T20i action for Greece against Italy recently.

Currie, 23, took 3-47 in the second innings as Sussex beat Middlesex in the 2nd XI Championshp last week.

The county will confirm who captains the side in the morning in the absence of Tom Haines, who has a broken hand.

Steven Finn took over in the draw with Leicestershire last week.

But head coach Ian Salisbury also said Cheteshwar Pujara was a candidate.

Sussex are aiming for a second division two win of the season.

Salisbury said: “We have been outstanding with the bat and I am really happy with the way our top six is shaping up.

“We will need to improve on the bowling side of things to get a result, and I am confident we can do that.

“Aristides Karvelas and Bradley Currie come in on trial for a month.

"They have really impressed when playing for our second team, they will provide extra options in our bowling department.”

Henry Crocombe and Jamie Atkins are both out due to slight shoulder injuries.

Sussex squad: Alsop, Carter, Clark, Coles, Currie, Finn, Hudson-Prentice, Hunt, Ibrahim, Karvelas, Lenham, Orr, Pujara, Rawlins.
