Amla & Topley in squad for Kent Blast trip - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Hashim Amla & Reece Topley have been added to Surrey’s 14-man squad that will take on Kent Spitfires at Canterbury on Tuesday.

Batsman Amla is available for the first time this summer after travel restrictions prevented his journey from South Africa earlier in the year.

Left arm seamer Topley could make his Surrey debut having been released from England’s T20 squad.

England U19s seamer Blake Cullen has been called back to Middlesex due to their injury concerns.

Surrey have two points from two matches in the Vitality Blast after a wash out at Sussex and a tied match against Essex at The Kia Oval on Sunday.

Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Jason Roy are all preparing for England’s upcoming fixtures. Roy will miss the IT20 series with Pakistan but will remain with the national squad ahead of the white-ball series with Australia.

Ollie Pope could miss up to four months after dislocating his left shoulder during the final Test between England and Pakistan.

Skipper Jade Dernbach is out with a groin injury. All-rounders Jordan Clark (foot and ankle), Rikki Clarke (hip) and Ryan Patel (knee) are all out.

Nick Kimber (knee) and Liam Plunkett (hamstring) are also out of contention for this match.

Conor McKerr’s season was ended by knee surgery earlier this month.

Morne Morkel is out for the remainder of the season after sustaining an ankle injury in pre-match fielding practice before the start of the Bob Willis Trophy fixture with Kent.

The match begins at 2pm on Tuesday. It is behind closed doors but will be live streamed by Kent and supported on Surrey channels. You can keep up to date with the game as it happens by following Surrey on Twitter.
