After joining Surrey, Sunil Narine will make his debut appearance in the Vitality T20 Blast. Narine, who will relocate to London once his IPL contract expires, was a member of the Oval-based Invincible during last year’s Hundred.
The first of Surrey’s two overseas slots for the Blitz will go to Narine, who was released by Oval Invincibles but may yet be re-signed at this month’s draught. Surrey kick off their season against Glamorgan at home on May 27, two days before the IPL final, with Narine anticipated to play throughout after arriving from India.
“We’re delighted Sunil will be joining us for this year’s Vitality Blast,” said Alec Stewart, Surrey’s director of cricket, in the Surrey’s official website.”
“His expertise in internationals and leagues throughout the world will be a tremendous asset as a proven winner in this format.” This summer, I’m looking forward to watching him perform in a Surrey shirt.”
Surrey were defeated finalists in the Blast last year and lost out in the knockout rounds this year.
🏟 Sunil Narine can't wait to play at The Kia Oval!
