Maxwell to face Royals at Finals Day
12:22pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in Sport
GLENN Maxwell will face his former Hampshire teammates at Finals Day – but Kevin Pietersen is not available for Surrey.
Maxwell, the catalyst for Hampshire’s 2012 success during the group stage, was unavailable for Finals Day last year but will try to end the Royals’ chances of reaching another domestic final.
Pietersen is rested by England ahead of the fifth and final Test of the Ashes series.
England coach Andy Flower explained: “He has played four Tests now and this is an opportunity to rest," said Flower.
"It would have been nice to make him available [for Surrey] but in this instance we can't."
Surrey are also without captain Gareth Batty, who has been banned for his behaviour in the semi-final win against Somerset.
Hampshire host Surrey in the Yorkshire Bank 40 tomorrow night – 48 hours before the t20 semi-final.
