I assume that Andy and Jason intend to keep him for so long as we're in the running for this trophy.

Surrey would appear to have next to no chance of winning this trophy, based on the sides that they have been picking so far.

Without a significant rebuild - or, perhaps, some of Surrey's England players falling from favour, it's not at all obvious that Jamie will be better placed to challenge for domestic trophies with his new county, moving forward.

Still, Jamie has presumably gone there mainly for international reasons .. thinking, rightly, that having the word "Surrey," next to his name will automatically inflate the perceived worth of his performances in the minds of simpleton selectors.

If Jamie were to go there this season, it looks like it would be him, Rikki Clarke and a bunch of novices........ so he'd have an awful lot of bowling to do.
