Hashim Amla will be leading Surrey while Dom Bess is captaining Yorkshire.
On the opening day of Royal London One-Day Cup 2021, Surrey and Yorkshire will be clashing off against each other in one of the most anticipated contests of this season. Despite missing most of their star players, both the teams have players who can make a mark in this competition.
Yorkshire had a terrible season in the 2019 Royal London One-Day Cup. They played eight games but managed to win only two of them. They had lost three while two ended in no result. Surrey, too, had a season to forget with seven losses and one win in their eight matches.
Yorkshire vs Surrey, Group B
Venue: North Marine Road Ground, Scarborough
Date & Time: July 22nd at 3:30 PM IST and 11:00 AM local time

The wicket in Scarborough has not been used in recent times for a 50 overs match, hence it is difficult to predict how it will hold up. However, we can expect that the curators have made a wicket which has a good balance between bat and the ball.

Top Picks for YOR vs SUR Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Yorkshire
Dom Bess has been given the job to lead this team and has been in good form with the ball in the recent T20 blast matches and also the county championship matches.
Will Fraine is a young and talented player, who has shown his skills in the T20 format and has a strike rate of around 150 in the shortest format. His record isn’t great in 50 overs cricket, but this will be an opportunity for him to improve.
Top Picks – Surrey
Mark Stoneman is an experienced player and would be looking to get some runs at the start of the tournament for his own confidence. He has scored more than 2700 runs in the format at an average close to 38 with six centuries and 17 fifties.
Hashim Amla had a staggering ODI career where he was known to break several records. He is closing on 10,000 List A career runs and has been in good form with the bat in this season of county cricket.
