Surrey will rely on the top-order batting that consists of Will Jacks, Hashim Amla and Evans. They have been scoring runs on a consistent basis while the spin duo Moriarty and Gareth Batty have been performing well. In fast bowling, Reece Topley has the work to do. Now, they have got the additional boost of Jason Roy in the lineup.
James Vince is yet to deliver a good performance for his side while Shaheen Afridi was ordinary in the middle. Fuller has been regular contributor alongside Holland and Mason Crane. Chris Wood has the capability to deliver. A lot of changes are expected.
