Smart move, gets him opening with Burns. Assume then Ryan Patel will drop down the order or move clubs as well.

Patel would probably do a decent job anywhere in the top 6, imagine he's on a decent wedge of cash at Surrey too.

Interesting Sibley is making the move but maybe figures it gets him in the picture for England easier.

Amla will be retiring at the end of the season and that means Patel can drop down to 3 when Pope isn't there.
Surrey should be more concerned about losing one of Virdi or Moriarty who haven't played a champo game all year.

To replace two homegrown talents being kept out of the side by another homegrown talent?

(Not strictly true that Moriarty is homegrown, but he didn't come from another county.)

And let's not forget that there were plenty on here who had these two down as more worthy of any England place than Jack Leach.  :o

Given they're both talents, hopefully at least one of them goes and gets a game elsewhere!

That is what Warwickshire do now... Surrey's player conveyor belt from the academy is about to go a bit nuts.

Ben Geddies (Ashtead) and Tom Lawes (Cranleigh) are the latest to get the call up and do well. There are a bunch of others behind them.

I hope Ollie Pope continues to bat at 4 for Surrey. Just to keep people on here confused.

Public schoolboys, the lot of them. :(

In Surrey they invest a lot in state school kids and proactively select state school kids ahead of private school kids where they can.
And then they get picked up on sports scholarships by big private schools.
You could argue there is some social mobility there.

I hope more counties follow suit, too much preferential treatment at the moment.

* If none of them, it's probably a box-ticking exercise.
