Surrey have named a 13 man squad for Friday’s opening Vitality Blast match at Essex Eagles on Friday 19th July.
T20 skipper Jade Dernbach will be looking to get his side off to a good start in this year’s tournament as they bid to reach their first Edgbaston Finals Day since 2015.
Overseas stars Aaron Finch and Imran Tahir are in line to play having joined up with the squad earlier this week following their ICC Cricket World Cup.
Jason Roy & Liam Plunkett are rested after their World Cup winning exploits but Tom Curran is available. Plunkett will then be available for the visit of Middlesex on Tuesday.
After the match, Rory Burns, Sam Curran and Roy will all travel to the FA’s St George’s Park in Burton for a training camp before the Test summer begins against Ireland next week.
Gus Atkinson (back), Conor McKerr (heel and hip) & Ollie Pope (shoulder) are continuing their rehabilitation after injury. Morne Morkel is rested.
