Surrey open their defence of the LV County Championship title next year where they finished last summer – at Emirates Old Trafford – after the 2023 fixtures were released today.

Rory Burns and his men suffered defeat by an innings and 130 runs in September, their only defeat of the season, with the title having already been decided. That enabled Lancashire to pip Hampshire for the runners-up spot while an additional challenge for the Division One champions will be seeking their first win at the ground since 2004.

It’s a busy start to the campaign – to be launched on Thursday April 6 – with six four-day matches in seven weeks. Like last year, Hampshire are the first visitors to the Kia Oval and will doubtless keen to improve on innings losses over the past two seasons. That is followed by a visit to Essex, fourth last year, on May 4. Home matches against promoted Middlesex and Kent complete the first phase of the Championship programme.

There’s an equally breathless start to the Vitality Blast, a trip across the Thames to play Middlesex at Lord’s on Thursday May 25 followed 24 hours later by Kent coming to The Oval, Sussex doing likewise on Sunday.

The T20 campaign is punctuated by four day matches against Kent at Canterbury (June 11-14) and Lancashire’s return clash (June 25-28).

An international flavour to the summer sees the World Test Championship final being hosted by Surrey on June 7, with six days allocated to ensure a finish, while on July 5 comes the women’s international T20 between England and Australia. That should whet the appetite for the final men’s Test, which is being staged at The Oval on July 27-31, the earliest Ashes match ever staged at the ground.

There are three Championship matches in July, Nottinghamshire coming south on July 10 before visits to Middlesex (July 19-22) and Somerset (July 25-28).

August will be dominated by the Hundred and while that takes place Surrey’s younger players will have the opportunity to shine in the 50-over competition, launched with a home date against Leicestershire on Thursday August 3. There’s a return to Welbeck for the date with Nottinghamshire on Sunday August 13 while two days later Surrey break fresh ground by taking on Yorkshire at York.

The Championship has three more rounds to play when it restarts in September, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire visiting The Oval – with New Zealand’s one-day international against England in between – and then Surrey wrapping up their season by taking on Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl on September 26-29.

South East Stars fans can pencil in home dates against Northern Diamonds (May 26) and Thunder (September 5).
