A mixture of T20 and four-day cricket dominates June.
With the Vitality Blast having been launched in late May, the instant form of the game is in full spate, Surrey’s first game of the month is against Gloucestershire on Friday June 2. Then it’s off to Canterbury two days later to cross swords with Kent.
While the World Test Championship takes place at The Kia Oval, Surrey will be on the road as they visit Glamorgan at Cardiff on Wednesday 7th and then Sussex at Hove 48 hours later.
A quick change of gear sees them don their whites again for a return match against Kent at Canterbury on Sunday 11th, which will be the first time Surrey enjoy a first-class outing at the St Lawrence ground in nine years. Centuries from Rob Key and Brendan Nash were at the heart of Kent’s eight-wicket success in 2014 and since then their meetings have been at Beckenham.
Next stop on the June tour is Taunton for a Blast outing against Somerset on Friday 16th – while the first Ashes Test takes place at Edgbaston – and then on Sunday 18th Surrey make their first appearance of the month at The Kia Oval, hosting Hampshire.
That’s followed two days later by Glamorgan arriving in London with the London derby against Middlesex coming on Thursday 22nd.
The red balls come out again on Sunday 25th for Lancashire’s first trip to the Kia Oval in five years. No one who witnessed the thrilling end to their last match there, a day-night clash in 2018, is likely to forget it with Surrey snatching victory by six runs as substitute Will Jacks snatched a remarkable catch to dismiss last man Matt Parkinson off Morne Morkel (6-57).
June is wrapped up by the T20 visit of Somerset on Friday 30th.
The Charlotte Edwards Trophy comes to the boil in June, South East Stars heading north to take on Thunder on Sunday 4th, then entertaining Central Sparks at Canterbury on Wednesday 7th. Finals day is at Worcester on Saturday June 10.
