India off-spinner R Ashwin was picked in the Surrey team in place of New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson, who was injured. Ravichandran Ashwin on Saturday was added to Surrey’s squad for the County Championship fixture against Somerset. Beginning July 11 at the Oval. Ravichandran will join the group for this match only.

Ashwi has chosen to play for Surrey in the County Championship to prepare for the upcoming Test series against England. He was asked to bowl the first over after Somerset captain James Hildreth won the toss and elected to bat.

The Indian off-spinner became the first specialist slow bowler in the last 11 years. Open the bowling in an English county game after Jeetan Patel in the year 2010.

Ashwin’s day-end figures read 28-5-70-1 as skipper Rory Burn. He is also an England opener used him from both ends of the Oval ground.

“Sean Abbott was originally expected to be Surrey’s second overseas player in this fixture, alongside Hashim Amla. But a hamstring injury sustained during the County Championship meeting with Gloucestershire ended his time at The Kia Oval early,” said Surrey in an official statement.

Somerset finished the opening day at 280 for 6 in 98 overs with skipper James Hildreth scoring 107 off 212 balls.
