Surrey Women have named a fourteen strong squad for their season opener, against Sussex at Wimbledon CC on Easter Monday.
New Club captain Aylish Cranstone will lead the side for the first time in a T20 double header in the ECB County T20 competition, with games starting at 11am and 3pm.
With regional cricket yet to start, Surrey are also able to call on the services of Bryony Smith and teenage star Alice Capsey, both of whom toured Australia with the England A side over the winter.
Surrey have been placed in a regionalised Group 6 of the competition, alongside traditional rivals Hampshire, Kent and Sussex. They will play three double headed match days with games to come against Kent on Sunday April 24th at the Polo Farm in Canterbury and Hampshire at Chipstead CC on Bank Holiday Monday, May 2nd.
Entry to all Surrey Women’s games is free of charge
The final match day is Finals Day, which will be hosted by Totton and Eling CC in Hampshire on Sunday May 8th.

Once the ECB County T20 has been played, Surrey will turn their focus to the London Championship, which is being played for the third year after initially being started in 2020 when Surrey ran out inaugural winners.
Surrey will play Sussex at Chipstead CC on June 12th, Middlesex at Mill Hill School on June 26th, Kent at Beckenham on July 17th and Essex back at Chipstead CC on July 28th.
As ever, there will also be the T20 London Cup against Middlesex, an annual one off game to determine the dominant T20 side in the capital. This year the game will take place at The Kia Oval on Thursday June 23rd, starting at 6pm.
