Surrey with a fringe on top

AdvantagesPlenty of internationals in current squad

DisadvantagesCounty form disrupted by test calls

"The Surrey side of the 1950s was perhaps one of the finest county sides ever. The team won seven consecutive county championships. The team consisted of great players such as Ken Barrington, Peter May, Alec + Eric Bedser, Jim Laker, Tony Lock, Peter Loader etc. Ken Barrington - was a hard-hitting batsman. He even managed the England touring team to the West Indies in 1980-81. On that tour there was the infamous Robin Jackman affair, which needed ..." Read review

The Oval All-Stars

AdvantagesGood strength in depth, excellent bowler in Saqlain

DisadvantagesEngland call-ups can weaken the team on paper

"...2 years it looks like Surrey will be close again this year. Although they are not top (yet) and certainly not running away with it the return of Saqlain Mushtaq now the Pakistan tour has finished will give a timely boost to the side. Surrey are now captained by Adam Hollioake and he still looks to fulfil his early promise and secure a place in the England team. He is possibly the next England captain in waiting if Nasser Hussain either starts to ..." Read review

Surrey Super Surrey

AdvantagesGood main squad of 16 players

DisadvantagesMight be stuck without a spinner soon, still playing division 2 1dayers

"Current county champions Surrey, who would bet against them winning it again. They have a team that excites with Ali Brown and Ian Ward providing the fireworks then batsmen like Alec Stewart, Graham Thorpe, Mark Butcher and the Hollioake brothers behind them. Martin Bicknell (how has he only managed a few appearances for England) and Alex Tudor lead the bowling attack backed up by Saqlain Mushtaq and Ian Salisbury. Plus there is youth comming through ..."

Thinking about going to watch Surrey?

AdvantagesA team full of internationals and entertainers

DisadvantagesCan very occasionally lose as spectacularly as they usually win!!

"...almost every day's play involving Surrey since the beginning of the 1998 season - and written two books, 'Pursuing The Dream' and 'The Dream Fulfilled - Surrey's 1999 County Championship Triumph', which cover the events of the past two campaigns. If you are interested in these books check out the website at www.sportingdeclarations.co.uk ..." Read review

Four timer for Butcher

Advantagesgreat feat, well done

Disadvantagesnone

"...his magnificent four timer for Surrey against Derbyshire today. It's brought cricket back into the forefront of the media, just before the Test Match starts. It was very interesting listening to Radio 5 live this afternoon when they ran the story of his four wickets in four balls. They were trying to figure out a descriptive word for the feat. Obviously three wickets on the trot is a 'HAT TRICK' So what's four on the trot. Listeners rang in, emailed ..." Read review

Ramps

Advantagestenacity

Disadvantagesloss of form

"The news of the arrival of mark ramprakash came as a surprise to me, as I have alwyas been a follower of his career. Having assumed a position of authority following the retirement of Mike Gatting at Middlesex, one could have safely presumed that this was going to be another one-county man. however, his prolonged and tormented failures at the crease led him to lose his england place and so I think the move, as a consequence, is a good one for the ..."
