George Dobell at Surrey (56-0) v Warwickshire.
You can’t blame Surrey for leaving out Ansari, really. It’s a reflection of the schedule. And the fact that they have two other Test spinners (Borthwick made his Test appearance as a spinner) in their XI. But the next time England struggle against spin – and it won’t be long – and the next time you hear someone moan about England not producing spinners, ask them if they support a window for T20 cricket. Because you can’t have it both ways and the fact is we are compromising our red-ball development for our white-ball improvement. This season the counties will have played eight of their 14 Championship matches before the end of June. Surrey are progressing well here. Stoneman has just hit Barker for successive fours – a cut followed by a pull – and Warwickshire have already turned to the now silver-haired Rikki Clarke.
