Surrey name squad for London Derby

Published: 27th August, 2017

Surrey have named a 13 man squad for their Specsavers County Championship match with Middlesex at the Kia Oval, starting on Monday 28 August.

Aaron Finch misses out on the match after sustaining a calf injury in Friday’s Natwest T20 Blast quarter-final defeat to Birmingham Bears while Moises Henriques has returned to Australia following the completion of Surrey’s white ball campaign.

Arun Harinath is also unavailable having failed to recover from a side strain picked up in the 2nd XI match with Middlesex earlier this month.

Youngsters Ollie Pope and Ryan Patel are in contention for their County Championship debut while Conor McKerr and Amar Virdi will both be hoping to make their third first-class appearances for Surrey.

Having played only two red ball matches in July and August so far, draws with Hampshire and Somerset, Surrey will be looking to kick start their final period of the season which includes five County Championship encounters.

As usual, fans can expect a fierce London Derby with Surrey currently in fourth in Division One of the County Championship and Middlesex in sixth.

There will be a live stream of the match, including commentary from Mark Church, on shortly before play begins at 11am on Monday.

The full squad is:

Gareth Batty (captain)

Scott Borthwick

Rory Burns

Rikki Clarke

Sam Curran

Jade Dernbach

Ben Foakes

Conor McKerr

Stuart Meaker

Ryan Patel

Ollie Pope

Jason Roy

Amar Virdi

As well as the cricket, the Surrey CCC Beer Festival will also be taking place at the Kia Oval throughout the week with more than 25 beers and real ales available to sample.
