YOR vs SUS – County Championship 2023 – Team Previews
Yorkshire’s stand-in captain, Jonny Tattersall, is hoping for a repeat of their performance against Worcestershire in their upcoming match against Sussex at Headingley. Yorkshire, currently placed sixth in Division 2, will be aiming to secure their second County Championship win of the season. They are 26 points behind this week’s opponents, Sussex, having won only one out of their eight games.
In their previous fixture against Worcestershire at New Road, Yorkshire came close to victory but were hindered by adverse weather conditions and resilient home batting. Due to rain and bad light, a total of 134 overs were lost during the match. Yorkshire posted 407 all out in the first innings and then enforced the follow-on after making Worcestershire trail by 165 runs. However, Worcestershire managed to finish with 242 runs in their second innings, recovering from a shaky position at 142 for 2.
Notable performances for Yorkshire in that match included Fin Bean’s impressive 135 runs in the first innings, supported by Adam Lyth’s 79. Bowler Ben Coad also made a mark with a five-wicket haul in the first innings.
In their upcoming game, third-placed Sussex is considered the clear favourite to beat Yorkshire. The two teams have faced each other once before in the tournament, but the match ended in a draw. Since then, Sussex has remained unbeaten, and their form has improved significantly.
Sussex boasts one of the strongest batting line-ups in the County Championship, with players like Tom Aslop, Oli Carter, and James Coles consistently scoring runs for the team. While their bowling department lacks some firepower, the team looked motivated and determined in their last match, and they will expect their bowlers to put up a strong performance against Yorkshire.
Unfortunately, Ali Orr and Steven Finn are still unavailable for selection, but they are hopeful of returning to the squad for the next month’s One Day Cup campaign. Additionally, George Garton is currently sidelined with a groin injury, and Brad Currie is away representing the Scotland national team.
