Sussex: Zac Toumazi rejects Kent merger talk

Sussex CCC chief executive Zac Toumazi tells BBC Radio Kent that the club "can't see the value" in a proposed merger with Kent.

Lord MacLaurin, a former chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, suggested combining the two clubs to help reduce the number of county sides from 18 to 12 and improve the quality of cricketers England produces.

Sussex were formed in 1839, contested in the inaugural County Championship in 1890, and won the title three times in the 2000s.
