SURREY SQUAD

Surrey have named an unchanged 14-player squad for the visit of Nottinghamshire.

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE

Nottinghamshire sit in sixth place of Group A of the Royal London Cup – having won four games and lost three. They have beaten Sussex, Somerset, Durham and Leicestershire so far this campaign.

Two points separate Sussex in top spot and Nottinghamshire in sixth – meaning that Notts still have an outside chance of qualification in the final round of fixtures.

Haseeb Hameed has been in imperious form with the bat for Notts so far this campaign – scoring 299 runs in 6 innings at an average of 59.17. With the ball, Brett Hutton has taken 16 wickets in 7 games, with an economy of 4.35 and a best of 7/26 against East-Midlands rivals Leicestershire on Saturday.
