SURREY WILL be led by Adam Hollioake against Yorkshire at Headingley today. While he was on England one-day duty Mark Butcher was captain when they beat Nottinghamshire. The Championship leaders also welcome back their England quartet of Butcher, Stewart, Ben Hollioake and Ian Salisbury.

Yorkshire include the 20-year-old Gary Fellows in their squad. Fellows, a product of the club's Academy, is included along with Craig White, who returns to the four-day squad for the first time since June, since when he has been out of action with an injury to his lower back. He is likely to play just as a batsman.

Lancashire will wait on the return of John Crawley from The Oval before finalising their team against Derbyshire at Old Trafford. Mike Atherton could return, providing he does not suffer any further back problems, and Ian Austin and Peter Martin are definitely back after missing the last game at Durham on England duty.

Chris Lewis - dropped for the last Championship game against Nottinghamshire - is set to return for Leicestershire against Warwickshire at Edgbaston but probably not as captain. Phil Simmons is in line to continue in the role.

Gloucestershire are expected to keep the team beaten by Somerset on Sunday for their game against Northamptonshire at Bristol. They have included wicketkeeper Richard Williams with the possibility that he could play as a batsman.
