Surrey has named Jade Dernbach in their squad to play Lancashire in today’s Twenty20 semi-final against Lancashire.
If he is named in the eleven, it will be Dernbach’s first Twenty20 match for Surrey after the young paceman made his debut in last Sunday’s totesport league game against Sussex.
Dernbach has earned his place in the squad with some consistent performances for Surrey’s second team. In a recent match against Nottinghamshire, he took 7-130, which he then immediately backed up in the very next match with five wickets.
Dernbach has been given the opportunity through a hand injury to James Ormond, which he sustained in Surrey’s recent Championship match against Kent at Guildford.
Today's semi-final against Lancashire is a repeat of last year’s memorable semi-final, which Surrey narrowly won by two runs. It was a shock loss for Lancashire, who were red hot favourites to win, after they had dismissed Surrey for just 133. But Lancashire will be an even tougher proposition this time around with the addition of Andrew Symonds. Symonds holds the record for the fastest hundred in Twenty20 Cup history, from just 34 balls when he played for Kent last season.
