Patel is a Surrey Academy graduate who has progressed through the club’s system, and is now a regular in the red-ball side.
Patel’s stand out moment to date came during the Guildford victory over Somerset in 2018 when he claimed five wickets in 11 balls, ending with figures of 6/5 and a first-class record to boot.
His versatility with the bat; operating as an opener right through the middle order and down to eight, as well as his right-arm medium pace saw him play 10 matches as Surrey went on to win the Specsavers County Championship. 2019 saw Ryan score his maiden first-class century for the Club.
Guildford has become a cherished venue for Patel, who smashed his maiden List A century there with 131 runs from just 70 balls against Nottinghamshire there in 2021.Related Articles
