Surrey Players' Diary: July 2021 - Kia Oval Skip to main content

With the English domestic cricket season around the halfway point already, our players are busier than ever. Here’s what they will be up to in July.


Surrey’s 1st XI will have to get used to switching formats this month, with matches to be played in the Vitality Blast, LV= County Championship & Royal London Cup.

Our three Vitality Blast fixtures will round off the group stage and decide whether we reach the knockout stages. They are Kent away (2nd July), Kent home (9th July) and Gloucestershire away (16th July).

In between those, we’ll take on Hampshire at The Ageas Bowl in the LV= County Championship between 4th and 7th before welcoming Somerset to The Kia Oval in the first-class competition between 11th and 14th.

Once they’re complete, our Royal London Cup campaign begins. We’ll begin against Yorkshire at Scarborough on the 22nd before Nottinghamshire coming to Guildford on the 27th and Northamptonshire at The Kia Oval on the 30th.
