AUSTRALIA TOUR OF ENGLAND LIVE: Australia v Sussex at Hove

Follow all the live action as Australia take on Sussex ahead of their ODIs against England

Australia have reached 9-277 in their 50-over tour match against Sussex, one of two practice games before their five-match ODI series against England starts next week.

Marcus Stonis struck a brilliant 110, and Aaron Finch added 78, but no other batsman managed more than the 21 hit by both D'Arcy Short and Ashton Agar.

Jofra Archer, he of Hobart Hurricanes fame, took 3-62 from his 10 overs but the spin of Danny Briggs (2-42) and Luke Wells (2-44) caused the Aussie middle order issues.

The departure of Finch sparked a collapse of 4-13 in 31 balls that left the visitors teetering at 5-180 in the 36th over. They had been 1-167 and flying after a strong start from Finch and Short was continued with Stoinis coming in at No.3.

Maxwell came in at No.4 but meekly chipped to mid-off to depart for one while Travis Head was trapped in front for 2, before skipper Tim Paine chipped a return catch to also depart for 2.

Four frontline quicks have been named - Michael Neser, Kane Richardson, Jhye Richardson and Andrew Tye - alongside spinning allrounder Ashton Agar.

Shaun Marsh, Nathan Lyon, Billy Stanlake and Alex Carey were the players to miss out.

The Aussies will come up against some familiar faces on England's south coast, including one of Australia's modern greats.

Sussex are coached by Justin Langer's former teammate Jason Gillespie and have also included KFC BBL star Jofra Archer in their 12-man squad.

Langer, Paine set out their expectations for Australia

The match at the County Ground in Hove that is a sell-out and Gillespie has dismissed any thought that his players will treat the match as a training run.

"We want to win this game," he said. "We want to test ourselves against the best.

"We know we're going to be underdogs but we're going to fight hard and try and win."
