18 years of T20s has seen The Kia Oval become the Home of T20 Cricket after countless nights of big hits and family fun but what are Surrey’s biggest home totals in the format?
We’ve seen some incredible batsmen turn out for Surrey over the years including our very own Jason Roy, Australian white-ball skipper Aaron Finch, England legend Kevin Pietersen, Sri Lankan icon Kumar Sangakkara and cult hero Azhar Mahmood.
