World Cup winner Liam Plunkett is in line to feature for Surrey in the T20 Blast on Tuesday, while Ollie Pope could return from a shoulder injury.

Both players have been named in Surrey’s 14-man squad to face Middlesex at The Oval (18:30 BST).

Plunkett, 34, took 3-42 as England overcame New Zealand following a super over in the final at Lord’s on 14 July.

England Test batsman Pope dislocated his shoulder while fielding against Essex in the One-Day Cup in April.

The 21-year-old, who scored 159 runs at an average of 39.75 in last season’s T20 Blast, required surgery on the injury but is now fit to return.
