England pair pen Surrey deals

25th January 2019, 18:17 by Bobbie Jackson

Surrey have handed new contracts to seven players including England pair Ollie Pope and Mark Stoneman.

Scott Borthwick, Will Jacks, Ryan Patel, Conor McKerr and Amar Virdi have also put pen to paper with the county.

Surrey have tied Pope and Jacks down to deals which run until 2022, while the other five will remain part of the set up until 2021.

Director of cricket Alec Stewart believes the new contract will enable Surrey “to build on last year’s Championship success”.

He added: "It's crucial we keep our highly talented group of players together."

Meanwhile, veteran Gareth Batty, who signed a new deal at the end of the 2018 season, has been handed a player-coach role.
