Meaker or Dernbach

Stuart Meaker or Jade Dernbach or even both could become the first players of the Surrey Brown Caps to take to the field following the tragic death of young Welsh batsman Tom Maynard earlier in the week as they are in contention for a place in the lineup of the England Cricket Team to take on the West Indies in the One Day International match at Headingley.

After Maynard was found dead, presumably after being hit by a London Underground Train, according to reports filed by the London Police, the Surrey Brown Caps have suspended all their games until their Twenty 20 match against the Essex Eagles to be held on Friday at Chelmsford. However, the match being an evening/night game, either one of Meaker and Dernbach or both could well have played for The Three Lions against the Caribbean by that time.

According to reports, Dernbach is the hardest hit by reports of the tragic death of Tom Maynard, who was his closest friend and team mate at Surrey and Andy Flower, the coach of the England Cricket Team had granted him permission to withdraw from the rest of the series if he felt like it ahead of the last One Day International between the two teams played at The Oval, the home of the Surrey Brown Caps.

But both Stuart Meaker and Dernbach are available for selection for the Headingley match against the West Indies and with the likes of Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann as well as Tim Bresnan rested for that match, at least one or both of these two players from the Surrey Brown Caps could be selected to partner Samit Patel, Steve Finn and veteran James Anderson as the England Cricket Team look to make a clean sweep of the side led by Darren Sammy.
