Hunn in LV= County Championship squad v Surrey at Kia Oval

Sunday 12th July 2015

Kent return to red-ball cricket with a trip to the Kia Oval to face Surrey in the LV= County Championship on Monday (11am start). Fresh from sealing a spot in the NatWest T20 Blast quarter-finals with two wins this weekend, Kent will aim for a fifth consecutive win in all formats. It is the 250th first-class fixture between the counties, a reprise of the original inter-county fixture in 1609. Rob Key (illness) and Ivan Thomas (side strain) are sidelined for the match and seamer Matt Hunn could earn a first Championship start of 2015 after a five-wicket haul against Australia at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence last month. Surrey will be without wicketkeeper Gary Wilson (international duty) and Matt Dunn (side strain). Kumar Sangakkara is back after his farewell Test appearance for Sri Lanka. Kent squad: 17 Sam Northeast (c), 23 Daniel Bell-Drummond, 6 Joe Denly, 21 Ben Harmison, 3 Darren Stevens, 20 Sam Billings (wk), 24 Adam Ball, 25 Calum Haggett, 26 Matt Coles, 14 Matt Hunn, 15 James Tredwell, 19 Sam Weller, 33 Adam Riley. Surrey squad: 13 Gareth Batty (c), 22 Zafar Ansari, 17 Rory Burns, 8 James Burke, 51 Sam Curran, 59 Tom Curran, 7 Ben Foakes, 10 Arun Harinath, 12 Tim Linley, 20 Jason Roy, 11 Kumar Sangakkara, 45 Dominic Sibley, 42 Vikram Solanki.
