Surrey plan South Africa trip

January 31, 2013 12:32:14 UK

Graeme Smith will meet his new county colleagues in his home city this winter after Surrey revealed their pre-season tour is to Cape Town.

Surrey are to spend just over a week at a training camp at Western Province Cricket Club and will be introduced to Smith, who moved to the city from Johannesburg at the start of his professional career, during their stay.

There are lots of good reasons to take the squad away this year.

Chris Adams

Smith, 32 on Friday, when he becomes the first man in the history of cricket to captain in 100 Test matches, agreed a deal to move to the Kia Oval as club captain during the winter.

It is hoped that his leadership skills will help the club re-focus on their goals following a traumatic 2012 season which included the death of stellar young batsman Tom Maynard. Surrey are 1213.00 to win the Division One Championship in 2013 while Durham are 1.40 and Middlesex can be backed at 51.00

"There are lots of good reasons to take the squad away this year," said Surrey's team director Chris Adams.

"To have nine days in March to work on skills-based training at fantastic facilities is a tremendous opportunity for us and one we are very much looking forward to.

"Most people will acknowledge that we will get a chance to go and see Graeme Smith and we are hoping to spend an afternoon with him during our trip to Cape Town.

"We will also be able to join up with our academy and play a one-day fixture against them."

Surrey have added to their core of experienced campaigners for 2013 with the recruitment of left-arm spinner Gary Keedy from Lancashire and ex-Worcestershire captain Vikram Solanki.

Don't forget, all of the fantastic markets we have to offer, including In-Play betting, can be accessed on mobile or tablet with bet365 On The Move.
