George Dobell at Surrey v Warwickshire (29-0 trail by so many it hardly matters)
Hello from the Kia Oval. It’s another perfect day. Though slightly more perfect for Surrey supporters than their Warwickshire counterparts. How relevant is it that the two key performances in this game have come from recent recruits: Stoneman and Footitt? The cynical may suggest Surrey have bought success but they actually have five (it’s arguable, I know) home-grown players in their side compared to Warwickshire’s two. And recruitment is a key part of the development process. It’s very early days, but it really does look as if it is all starting to come together for them. It looks a good day for batting, but there was some variable bounce yesterday evening and you wouldn’t think the light roller (there’s no heavy roller in this game) will flatten it out. Time for Bell to remind everyone of his undoubted class.
