Lewis names 13 for Sharks showdown

Durham Jets head coach Jon Lewis has named a 13-man squad to face Sussex Sharks in tomorrow night’s Vitality Blast quarter-final at Emirates Riverside (6:30pm start).

Tom Latham will again captain the side ahead of the first quarter-final to be staged in the North East since 2008, which ended in victory over Glamorgan.

The Jets are aiming for a second Finals Day appearance in three years, but first must overcome a Sussex side with three straight Vitality Blast wins.

Mark Wood, who played a huge part in the run to the final in 2016, is expected to play.

Ben Stokes was also added to the squad after a re-assessment over his left knee niggle & will play as a batsman-only.

James Weighell (broken hand) & Liam Trevaskis (glandular fever) miss out, while new signings Alex Lees & Axar Patel are not eligible to play in T20s. All-rounder Scott Steel is named in the 13.
