Cheteshwar Pujara and Steven Finn as part of Captain Sussex

Sussex will make a decision on their captaincy while Tom Haines is sidelined.

Steven Finn stepped in after Haines broke his hand in the draw against Leicestershire.

Haines will be out for at least six weeks.

That excludes him from championship trips to Middlesex and Nottinghamshire, as well as the 50-overs Royal London Cup.

Head coach Ian Salisbury said Finn and Cheteshwar Pujara are candidates for the transition period.

Sussex is hoping Ollie Robinson will return for the trip to Trent Bridge in the week after next.

Salisbury said: “He’s about to fire again but obviously we’re governed by the ECB.”

However, George Garton is not yet ready for the rigors of the 1st XI Championship.

Garton led the 2nd XI to a win over Middlesex last week, finishing the contest on a quick 50.

But he threw only four overs in each inning and went wicketless.

Salisbury said: “He played that game and they are nursing him back post Covid.

“You can’t pick someone as a rounder who has only bowled eight overs in the game.”
