Reece Topley: Surrey sign England left-arm seamer on two-year white-ball deal


Reece Topley was Sussex’s leading wicket-taker in the T20 Blast this summer

Reece Topley has joined Surrey on a white-ball deal after leaving Sussex.

The 25-year-old England left-arm seamer will also be considered for Surrey’s County Championship matches.

Topley, who has signed a two-year deal, was last weekend drafted by the Oval Invincibles to play in the new 100-ball competition The Hundred next summer.

After reviving his injury-hit career with Sussex this summer, he rejected a “long-term contract offer” to stay at Hove earlier this month.

Former Hampshire and Essex bowler Topley enjoyed an excellent T20 Blast campaign, taking 17 wickets to help Sussex top the South Group, as well as playing two Championship matches in September.

“The set-up at Surrey is renowned for being excellent,” Topley said.
