A diminutive top-order batsman, Tom Haines nailed down a spot in Sussex's County Championship side in 2018, and was rewarded with a long-term contract.
Haines owed his third Championship appearance for Sussex - and first for two years - to the fact that Chris Jordan was called into the England Lions squad, opening up the chance of a third County Championship match for Sussex and his first for nearly two years. It was so last-minute that he even needed his mum to give him a lift to Arundel from the second-team match at New Malden. It was quite a way to prepare for what followed: a maiden Championship hundred against Durham at Arundel.
He spent the 2018-19 winter in South Africa at the Gary Kirsten Academy, but endured a lean 2019 as he failed to pass 39 in his 11 Championship innings.
A compact left-handed batsman, who primarily bats in the top three, Haines also provides an extra bowling option with some bustling medium pace.
