Surrey have named a squad of 15 for the London Derby trip to Lord’s to face Middlesex in our opening fixture in this year’s Vitality Blast.
England internationals Sam Curran, Tom Curran & Jason Roy are all named in a Surrey squad for the first time this season after serving their periods of isolation following an early return from the IPL.
Gareth Batty is expected to captain the side while pathway graduate Ben Geddes would make his senior debut for the Club should he be selected.
Rory Burns & Ollie Pope are unavailable as they prepare for the second Test with New Zealand, starting at Edgbaston on Thursday. Ben Foakes continues his recovery from the hamstring injury that ruled him out of that series.
Jade Dernbach and Liam Plunkett are both continuing on their back to bowling programmes while Reece Topley is out for up to six weeks due to a side strain.
Surrey will be looking to get off to a flying start in the competition that they finished as runners-up in last year. As the match is live on Sky Sports for UK viewers, there will be no stream available online. Supporters overseas can follow the BBC commentary or via the Club’s social media channels.
