CRICKET

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Sport -

Ashes hope­fuls Mark Stone­man and Ben Foakes as well as Eng­land’s lim­ited-overs play­ers Ja­son Roy and Tom Cur­ran have all signed con­tract ex­ten­sions at Sur­rey.

Stone­man is likely to open the bat­ting along­side Alas­tair Cook for Eng­land this win­ter, while un­capped wick­et­keeper-bats­man Foakes is among the 16-man tour­ing party head­ing to Aus­tralia.

Big-hit­ting bats­man Roy and seam bowler Cur­ran could also be trav­el­ling Down Un­der this win­ter as part of the white-ball cricket that fol­lows the Ashes, and the quar­tet have all com­mit­ted to Sur­rey un­til at least the end of the 2020 sea­son.

Stone­man, who has played in Eng­land’s last three Tests, told Sur­rey’s of­fi­cial web­site: “I have thor­oughly en­joyed my first sea­son with the club.

“I be­lieve over the next few years I can be part of a suc­cess­ful pe­riod in Sur­rey CCC’s his­tory.”
