Jofra Archer is in line for his first Sussex appearance since becoming a World Cup winner after the ECB cleared him to play for the Sharks in their sold out Vitality Blast clash against Surrey at The 1st Central County Ground tomorrow night.

Archer has been recuperating after reporting soreness on his left side following England’s World Cup win at Lord’s on July 14 but passed a fitness test with the England and Sussex medical teams at Hove this morning.

The right-arm quick bowled pain-free in the nets to his Sussex and England team-mate Chris Jordan.

He replaces Aaron Thomason in the 14-man squad that was named ahead of the Sharks’ 15-run victory over Hampshire on last night.
