The young West Indies pacer, Jayden Seales will join Sussex County Club for the initial stages of County Championship 2023. He will be available for both Championship & T20 Matches from April 2023.
“As a young fast-bowler, I want to expose myself to as many different conditions and challenges as possible,” Seales said. “I can’t wait to test myself in England and hopefully contribute to a winning start for Sussex in both Championship and T20 cricket.”
A Glimpse of Jayden Seales’s Career Accomplishment
After making his Test debut at the age of 19 against South Africa in June 2021, Seales turned heads around with his impactful performances. He scalped three wickets at an economy rate of 3.57 in 21 overs. He has played nine Tests scalping 36 wickets at an average of 21.77. His best figure throughout his career is 5 for 55 against Pakistan in August 2021 which made him the youngest West Indies bowler to scalp five-wicket in the Test format.
During the West Indies home Test series against England in march 2021, Seales scalped 11 wickets to become the joint-highest wicket-taker along with Kemar Roach & Jack Leach for his 11 wicket haul. He also returned with figures of 4 for 79 during West Indies first innings of the First Test. Though Seales is uncapped in T20Is he has proved to be effective in Powerplay & Death overs during his stints with TKR in the CPL & at the LPL with Jaffna Kings. Seales was the most prolific pacer of LPL 2021 with 15 wickets in seven matches at an economy rate of 7.81. In June Seales also earned his maiden CWI International retainer contract which is valid till 2023.
Sussex Performance Director is excited with Jayden Seales Signing
Sussex Performance Director described the signing of an overseas seamer of Seales’s caliber as crucial for boosting the club’s performance in the County Championship 2023. Sussex failed to create an impact during County Championship 2022 & ended their campaign at the second position from the bottom in eight-team Division two during County Championship 2022. In the Vitality T20 Blast 2022 also Sussex couldn’t impress with its performance & end as the seventh out of nine teams.
“Those who have played against him and seen him at close quarters have been impressed by his skills and appetite for bowling. He has certainly started impressively in Test cricket, and it is also great that he wants to play County cricket and knows how important it can be for him going forward,” Green said in his statement.
Jayden Seales addition will add more power to the Sussex’s line-up & might improve their performance in the upcoming edition of the County Championship.
