Cheteshwar Pujara of India and Mohammad Rizwan of Pakistan made their Sussex debuts on Thursday in the County Championships Division 2 against hosts Derbyshire.

While Pujara has already played first-class cricket in England, this is the first appearance for Pakistan's wicketkeeper batter.

Pujara is looking to score a lot of runs in order to make a Test comeback after being dropped during the South Africa trip, Rizwan has been one of the top wicket-keeper hitters in international cricket over the previous few years.

With Sussex having lost their first game, head coach Ian Salisbury named both overseas players for the Derbyshire match.
