Tomorrow’s warm up match between Kent and Sussex will truly be a practice game, with the teams agreeing to not play a 40 over One Day fixture. Instead the practice game, which begins at 10.30am at St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury, will consist of unlimited overs. The plan is for one team to bat for three hours, a ten minute interval and then the others side to bat for three hours. Lunch is programmed for 12.30pm, change of innings, 2.10pm , tea 3.20pm and close of play approximately 5.45pm.

Teams to be announced the morning of the game.
