Specsavers County Championship Division One 2017
Essex trail Surrey by 42 runs with 3 wickets remaining
A top order batsman and leg spin bowler, Scott Borthwick joined Surrey from Durham in 2016 with the hope of adding to the single Test cap he earned in 2014.
Borthwick started his career as a leg spin bowler and good lower order batsman but has developed into one of the County Championship’s most consistent top order performers.
With straight seasons under his belt where he has scored over 1,000 first-class runs, Borthwick will looking to continue his prolific run getting whilst also using the sometimes more spin friendly conditions of the Kia Oval to continue to develop his leg spin.
