Cricket: Surrey return for Dominic Sibley

Dominic Sibley has signed for Surrey CCC. He left the club in 2017 to join Warwickshire but will return to The Kia Oval for the start of the 2023 season.

Epsom-born Sibley developed through the Surrey age group and academy, representing the club from the U9s all the way up to the first team, making his Surrey debut at 18 years old. In 2013, he became the youngest double centurion in County Championship history, scoring 242 against Yorkshire at The Kia Oval aged just 18 years and 21 days.

Sibley has scored 1,042 Test runs with two hundreds, which came against South Africa and the West Indies. Sibley has scored 17 centuries in 108 first-class matches including three double-hundreds.

Sibley said: “I’m really excited to be returning home after five years. It feels great and I’ll be hoping to make match winning performances that contribute to success and trophies.”

Alec Stewart, director of cricket at Surrey CCC, said: “I’m very pleased to be bringing Dom back to The Kia Oval.

“I made no secret at the time that I didn’t want him to leave but the move to Warwickshire worked out well for him as he earned England selection. I truly believe his best years are still ahead of him and his proven run scoring ability will add even more strength to our current group of players. I look forward to watching him score big runs again in a Surrey shirt and it’s great for the club to have ‘one of our own’ back with us at the Kia Oval.”
