Aristedes Karvelas and Brad Currie called up to Sussex squad


Sussex added two trialist-fast-medium bowlers to their roster to take on 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 venue of St John’s Wood well as a former young MCC cricketer.

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

He bowled three overs for just ten runs as he recently opened bowling in T20i action for Greece versus Italy.

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

The county will confirm who runs the squad this morning in the absence of Tom Haines, who has a broken hand.

Steven Finn took charge of the draw against Leicestershire last week.

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

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

Salisbury said: “We were outstanding with the racquet and I’m very happy with the way our top six is ​​developing.

“We need to improve on the bowling side to get a result and I’m confident we can do that.

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

“They really impressed when they played for our second team, they will bring additional opportunities in our bowling department.”

Henry Crocombe and Jamie Atkins are both out with minor shoulder injuries.
