Surrey 2nds bounced back from defeat in the opening T20 match of the day to beat their Hampshire counterparts at the Ageas Bowl.
Against a Hampshire team including New Zealand power hitter Colin Munro and Specsavers County Championship regulars Liam Dawson, Joe Weatherley, Kyle Abbott and Chris Wood, Surrey held their own in the T20 double header.
Chasing 165 to win the second match, Surrey knocked them off with one ball remaining with Chris Green (44) and wicket keeper Ross Richardson (38) starring with the bat.
In the field, six of the seven Surrey bowlers took one wicket each. Amar Virdi, Colby Dyer, Prince Singh, Gus Atkinson, Stuart Meaker and Green all claimed scalps as the visitors held Hampshire to 164/6.
Earlier in the day, Surrey set 118/6 batting first in the opening innings at the Ageas Bowl.
After all of the top four other than Freddie Boys (21) fell for single figures, Gus Atkinson and Nico Reifer combined to take Surrey to a score that would give them something to defend.
Atkinson made 40, with two sixes on the way, while Reifer ended the 20 overs on 32 not out including three boundaries.
Although Meaker saw off Munro and wicket keeper Tom Alsop for 0 and 1 respectively, a big partnership between international capped players Liam Dawson (65) and Kyle Abbott (35) took the hosts to the win.
