“There’s still at least 300 overs for me to bowl [this season] before that’s even considered,” stated Worrall after main his Surrey team-mates off the sector. “The way the rules are, it’s three years since being a local player in England, so I suppose that would be next April. I’m ready to go if I’m required, but I’ve learned in my time that as soon as you think that far ahead, you’re kidding yourself.

“When I started at Surrey I did so with the mindset that I had sort of another full career ahead of me. And I always had an ambition to play in England as an Englishman and have a career in England.”

Surrey picked up the ultimate 5 Hampshire wickets they required for the victory on the Kia Oval which, with Essex drawing a a rain-affected sport at Durham, means Essex and Surrey each have 71 factors after 4 matches.

Four of Worrall’s 5 second innings wickets fell to tremendous catches by Ollie Pope at second slip. The England vice-captain held six within the innings and eight within the match, equalling Surrey’s first-class report for a non-wicketkeeper.

Surrey captain Rory Burns, who scored a century earlier within the sport, praised his assault, during which Worrall companions Kemar Roach with the brand new ball. England’s Gus Atkinson bowled a hostile spell on the fourth morning, too.

“I think the way our bowling attack has performed in this game, and especially in the second innings because of the relentless nature of it, is very much a blueprint for us as we go further into the season,” he stated. “It is very pleasing that we have started the season so well.”

Because of poor climate, Surrey had been the one facet to safe a win throughout seven matches within the Championship this weekend.
