🏏 Surrey County Cricket Club take on Somerset at The Kia Oval as the hosts begin the defence of their LV= Insurance County Championship Division One title.
Surrey are back for another season of County Championship action with a hat-trick on their minds. Last summer the Division One title race went to the wire when the Three Feathers successfully saw off the threat of Essex to defend the title they won in 2022. See below for Surrey County Cricket Club tickets information.
The last time the Kia Oval won back-to-back Division One titles was 1999-2000. This season history beckons if they can bring up an unprecedented three titles in a row.
This week’s match against Somerset is followed by a visit to Kent next week. Surrey then return to home soil for a match against Hampshire starting on Friday 26 April.
Captain Rory Burns and Dom Sibley lead a strong nucleus of experienced players in the Surrey team heading into the new season. Joining them from Essex this season is Dan Lawrence who is aiming to impress with the bat for the Three Feathers and force himself into the England team reckoning.
Ten teams in total feature in Division One. Surrey are joined by Essex, Durham, Hampshire, Kent, Northamptonshire, Lancashire, Somerset, Worcestshire and Warwickshire.
🏏 Play starts daily at 10.30am.
