Surrey v Middlesex – Team News
Surrey have bolstered their options with the loan capture of bowler Jamie Overton from Sussex. He went straight into the side against Hampshire and is likely to feature again.
Overton follows Laurie Evans to make the move from the Sharks. Evans is also on loan ahead of completing a permanent switch.
Bowler Reece Topley is back after his international return last month. Surrey also have England Test opener Rory Burns looking to anchor their innings.
South African Hashim Amla has started really brightly with the bat alongside fellow opener Will Jacks.
Dan Moriarty has been in impressive form with the ball as he and skipper Gareth Batty lead their spin attack. Topley and Overton will again look to complement them with pace.
Middlesex bowler Toby Roland-Jones has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
However, they will be heartened by the current white-ball form of skipper Steve Finn and Tom Helm.
Stephen Eskinazi has shone at the top of the order and finding more support for him is going to be key to Middlesex’s chances.
