Surrey have named a squad of 15 to take on Northamptonshire in Northampton, starting at 10:30am on Sunday 5th September.
This will be Surrey’s first match in Division Two of the LV= County Championship after last week’s meeting with Durham was abandoned due to a COVID case in the Surrey squad.
Hashim Amla will captain the team. The 15 selected are all of the fit & available players currently at the Club, with England duties & injuries ruling out a number of players.
Rory Burns, Sam Curran & Ollie Pope remain with the England Test team for their ongoing series with India, currently in its fourth match at The Kia Oval.
Ben Foakes and Nicholas Kimber are both on a return to playing programme set by the Club’s medical and sports science team while Jamie Overton is recovering from a back issue. Ben Geddes is self-isolating and Nico Reifer is ill.
After consultation with the ECB medical team, England white ball contracted player Tom Curran will miss the LV= County Championship game at Northamptonshire in order to aid his recovery from a knee injury that he has been managing for a period of time. We will await further updates on his progress.
England management have confirmed that Jason Roy will be unavailable for the rest of the LV= County Championship campaign. Roy will be given time to work on his white-ball skills and fitness ahead of the winter programme, which includes the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in the UAE.
This match will be live streamed by our hosts and shared on kiaoval.com. Regular updates will be available on Surrey’s social media channels.
