Kevin Pietersen will make his competitive comeback in the field after Surrey won the toss and chose to bowl in their LV= County Championship match with Yorkshire.
Pietersen was named in the Brown Caps side at Headingley, making his first on-field appearance since flying home early from England's Test tour of New Zealand with a right knee injury in March.
He was subsequently ruled out of the return series as well as the Champions Trophy, but if comes through this match the 32-year-old should still be on course to make the Ashes.
Pietersen has been selected for England's Twenty20 international with New Zealand next week.
The county match also represents former England wicket keeper Alec Stewart's first in charge of Surrey following the sacking of Chris Adams, but there will be no Ricky Ponting.
The Australia great, who yesterday announced he would retire from all cricket in October, has a sore hand.
