Captain Ben Brown said: “It will be another exciting challenge against Kent. I think they’re pretty much full strength from what I can see, so it will be a great challenge for us as a young side to go to a Division One team.

“We’re really up for the challenge and when you’ve got a win under your belt, you go there with confidence.”

After not being included in the squad to face Kent, batsman Laurie Evans has joined Surrey on a one-week loan deal ahead of the London club's Bob Willis Trophy match against Essex.
