West Indies pace bowler Kemar Roach returns to Surrey Cricket Club
West Indies pace bowler Kemar Roach will return to Surrey Cricket Club for a third season following last year’s LV= Insurance County Championship Success.
Twenty-five of Roach’s wickets came in seven matches in last year’s championship triumph, including a second-innings five-for against Warwickshire at the Kia Oval in July.
The Barbadian has signed up for the first six games of the season for Surrey.
Roach – who last year became the sixth West Indian to reach 250 test wickets – will join up with the squad ahead of Surrey’s first fixture, away against Lancashire, and his first game back at the Oval will be against Hampshire between April 13-16.
Roach will then be available for the trips to Edgbaston and Chelmsford before finishing his spell with two home derbies against Middlesex in may.
He was quoted as saying, …quote ….” I really enjoy playing for Surrey and winning the title last year was incredible to be a part of. It’s such a talented and exciting group of players and I can’t wait to get back out on the pitch representing the club.” (end of quote)
