Broad will pass on his experience to the younger players in the Champion County match against Surrey.

Stuart Broad is to captain Marylebone in the Champion County match against Surrey in Dubai next month.

The 32-year-old Nottingham fast bowler will lead the MCC for the traditional curtain-raiser, that runs from March 24-27, after being involved in England's Test series against the West Indies in the Caribbean.

MCC assistant secretary of cricket John Stephenson said: "We are thrilled that Stuart has agreed to captain the side for the Champion County match against Surrey.

"He is not only a player of the very highest class, but his experience of over 100 Test matches will be invaluable to the younger players in the squad, and I am sure that they will be eager to learn from one of England's greatest ever bowlers.

"Surrey were undoubtedly the best side in last season's County Championship and have an extremely strong squad, so it will be a tough challenge for Stuart and his side but one I am sure they will relish."

Marylebone beat Essex in last year's match at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.
