“Surrey is a second home for me” – Roach back at Surrey for championship finale

West Indies Veteran seamer Kemar Roach has returned to Surrey for the three remaining matches of the club’s English County campaign.

The 35-year-old took 18 wickets in five matches earlier in the season, but had the stint cut short after he returned to Barbados prematurely to deal with a family matter.

Surrey host Warwickshire on September 6, and welcome Northamptonshire two weeks later before wrapping up their campaign with a trip to the Rose Bowl to face Hampshire, starting September 26.

“Surrey is a second home for me and I’m looking forward to getting back down to business ahead of three massive games,” Roach said.

“We know what the goal is for the team and I’m going to give everything to help achieve it.”

In his third season with the London club Roach has already taken 65 wickets from 17 matches, at an average of 24.

Roach is the current spearhead of the West Indies Test attack, with 265 wickets from 79 Tests, and lies fifth on the all-time list of West Indies wicket-takers in Tests.
