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

The 2021 English domestic cricket season is disappearing in the rear view mirror but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of cricket for us to watch from around the world over the next month.

Several Surrey players are a key part of the England team while there is plenty of domestic cricket happening in the Southern Hemisphere over the next few months.

The best way to watch Surrey in action in 2022 is with a Club Membership, priced at £20 for U16s and starting from £71 for adults.
