England call-ups can weaken the team on paper

Having been deserved county champions for the last 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...

“Surrey with a fringe on top”

published 23/08/2001

Plenty of internationals in current squad

“Four timer for Butcher”

great feat, well done

none

Well done to bowler Gary Butcher for 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...

“Ramps”

tenacity

loss 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...
