Match Notes

  • Alan Butcher faces uncertain future

    Surrey lunged further towards relegation with their innings-and-122-run defeat against Hampshire at The Oval leaving Alan Butcher, the coach, looking increasingly vulnerable

  • Desperate measures, desperate results

    Surrey's signing of Shoaib Akhtar is optimistic, misguided or both

  • Surrey left looking broken and beaten

    Even if there are any Surrey supporters clinging to the hope of top division cricket next year, the players appear to have resigned themselves to the inevitable after Nic Pothas' second century of the season, and Dimitri Mascarenhas' 99, lifted Hampshire

  • Shoaib strikes on Surrey debut

    After clocking up plenty of air miles between the UK and Asia, Shoaib Akhtar struck on his Surrey debut during a truncated opening day against Hampshire at The Oval

  • Shoaib named in Surrey squad

    Shoaib Akhtar has been included in Surrey's squad for their Championship match against Hampshire at The Oval after getting all his visa paperwork in order
