Sussex have signed Essex batsman Varun Chopra on a three-match loan deal.
The opener, 32, will be available for their County Championship Division Two games against Northants and Lancashire and the friendly against Australia A.
Chopra has 10,033 first-class runs to his name but has not played a four-day match for Essex this season.
"We feel that adding Varun to our squad sends a good message that performances are being taken into account," said Sussex head coach Jason Gillespie.
He told BBC Radio Sussex: "He's an experienced opening batsman who's played a lot of County Championship cricket, and he'll just come in and add that run-making ability."
Chopra will return to Essex in time for the start of their T20 Blast campaign on 18 July.
