Sussex County Cricket Club has announced the death of fast bowler Matt Hobden at the age of 22.

In a statement the club said it was "deeply shocked and saddened" to learn of his passing.

The cause of death is not known.

Sussex said: "Matthew was an exciting young cricketer with a big future ahead of him in the game.

"He was a fantastic individual who had progressed through Sussex's youth and academy ranks, having been born locally in Eastbourne.

"He made his first-class debut for Sussex in 2014 and had represented the county across all three formats over the past two seasons. He will be greatly missed."

Hobden studied at university in Cardiff before turning his focus to cricket, often playing in first-class and limited-overs matches for Sussex.

Earmarked for stardom, he was one of six pacemen chosen to take part in the Potential England Performance Programme (PEPP) this winter.
