Vithushan Ehantharajah at Sussex v Kent
My, it's good to be back. Hello #countycricketlive – hope you've all kept well. Missed you for the start of the summer (though I did manage to bag a couple of days off thanks to Northants and, mostly, Glamorgan) but currently at Hove, where the sun has made an appearance. Kent opted for a toss, won it and will bat.
Few bits of team news: Steve Magoffin misses out for Ajmal Shazad and Delray Rawlins, who was capped at age-group level for Bermuda but spent the winter pulling up trees for the England U19s, makes his first class debut. James Harris sits out with a chest injury (more for his and Middlesex's sake) meaning Wayne Parnell slots straight in. Kent's other loanee, Joe Weatherley (Hampshire) is out and replaced by Sean Dickson.
There was a very heavy stench of marijuana all the way from Hove station to the ground (a winding 10-minute walk). I thought it was a bit odd but a quick Google search threw up this news story from 2012.
