Surrey bowling mentor Ryan Sidebottom insists the county could dominate English cricket for years to come. The former Yorkshire star is enjoying life with his new county and he is expecting big things in the coming years.
Sidebottom won the County Championship with Yorkshire in 2014 and 2015 and Surrey look in a good position to follow suit.
Surrey went into this round of Championship games 32 points ahead of Nottinghamshire and they look like winning their first title since 2002.
Sidebottom has been impressed by the team’s togetherness and he is confident they can follow in Yorkshire’s footsteps.
He told the Cricketer: “Surrey have some great youngsters here: they have that togetherness, they know each other’s games; plus there are quality overseas players and fantastic signings like Jordan
Clark and Liam Plunkett coming in. It’s just a fine team.
“It’s similar to how it was at Yorkshire. Surrey could dominate a while, it just remains to be seen how many players go to England.”
