Sussex sign Warwickshire bowler Steffan Piolet on loan

Sussex have signed Warwickshire bowler Steffan Piolet on loan until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old will be available for three YB40 matches and three matches in the County Championship.

Piolet will not be eligible to play in the four-day game against Warwickshire at Edgbaston this month.

"This is a great opportunity for Steff to play first-class cricket against strong opposition," said Warwickshire director of cricket Dougie Brown.

"Opportunities for him to break into the County Championship squad at Edgbaston have been limited, despite being a regular in our YB40 and FLt20 teams.

"We wish him well for the remaining fixtures with Sussex."

Piolet, who previously had a spell with the Sussex Second XI, has only played three first-class matches but has taken 13 wickets at an average of 14.00 in those appearances.
