Dilshan back for Surrey

Surrey welcome back Sri Lanka star Tillakaratne Dilshan for this evening’s crunch NatWest T20 Blast clash with Somerset at the Kia Oval.

The all-rounder missed Surrey’s last two Blast games, defeats to Essex Eagles and Glamorgan, due to international duty.

However, he returns to likely partner red-hot Jason Roy atop the order with Kevin Pietersen also set to feature.

Seamer Stuart Meaker returns to the squad but fellow seamer Tom Curran is unavailable owing to an ankle injury that could end his season.

Sri Lanka all-rounder Tillakaratne Dilshan will boslter Surrey's already-formidable batting this evening against Somerset at the Kia Oval

Somerset, who travelled straight to London after beating Northamptonshire yesterday in the LV= County Championship, are missing injured wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter.

The England international sustained a broken nose and fractured cheekbone versus Northants.

Victory for Surrey will put them second in the South Group while a Somerset win will move them above their hosts and Glamorgan into third.
