After hearing more about what we have in store at Edgbaston this year in our previous blog, we’re certain you’ll want to hear about what’s occurring in the capital too.
We have a wealth of cricket options to offer at The Kia Oval this summer and being situated right in the heart of London, The Kia Oval is well-known for being one of the oldest and most historically important cricket grounds in the UK.
So, without further delay, here’s your guide to a highly anticipated year of cricket ahead at The Kia Oval…
T20 Vitality Blast – Surrey: Mon 14 June – Fri 9 July
The Southern Division of T20 Blast sees Surrey County Cricket Club kicking off the series with a home match victory against Glamorgan, followed by Sussex, Hampshire, Essex, Somerset, Middlesex and Kent. Surrey are hungry for victory this season after falling short of champions status to Notts Outlaws in 2020, who beat Surrey by six wickets.
ODI – vs Sri Lanka: Thurs 1 July
England’s second ODI of the summer against Sri Lanka takes place in the heart of the capital this year.
