Squads named for CB40 start

Team Director Chris Adams has named two thirteen man squads for the start of Surrey’s Clydesdale Bank 40 campaign which commences on Friday.

Surrey begin the defence of their title against Somerset at the Kia Oval in a repeat of last year’s final. Jacques Rudolph and Jon Lewis are included in a Surrey CB40 squad for the first time and Zafar Ansari who is available from his commitments at Cambridge University is also named in the squad.

After the game against Somerset, Surrey will travel to Edinburgh where they will take on the Scottish Saltires on Sunday at the Citylets Grange. Tim Linley will come into the squad to replace Ansari who returns to Cambridge.

Chris Adams commented: “We are looking forward to getting the defence of our CB40 title underway. We played some excellent cricket to win last year and we will be looking to bring our aggressive brand of play to the competition again this season.

“Defending a trophy brings a unique set of challenges. But we are prepared and ready for those challenges starting with Somerset on Friday. It is an exciting game to kick off the competition and we are all really looking forward to getting started.”
