Skipper focused on Surrey
RORY Hamilton-Brown has played down talk of a call-up to the England Performance Squad.
Upon receiving his man of the match award for leading a dominant Surrey to success over Somerset in last Friday's Clydesdale Bank 40 curtain-raiser, the 24-year-old said: "My hopes are just to keep doing well for Surrey. It's a really great place to captain, I'm really enjoying it and if anything comes off the back of that it'll be great."
On the game itself, Hamilton-Brown said: "We pride ourselves on playing well at the Oval and, obviously, against a really strong side it was good to get off to a winning start. I said at the toss I thought it was going to be a good wicket.
"We've had a couple of tough four-day wickets, but that one has been prepared for a while and it looked a belter. Having not played for a couple of weeks it was a bit shaky at the start, but, fortunately, we got through that and got a score.

"Although it was a good wicket, it started to spin, so it was a good toss to lose in the end and the way our boys bowled, I'm really proud of them.
"The great thing is we've got young Surrey players coming through and that's really exciting.
