Surrey v Middlesex: Recent Meetings

Published: 27th November, 2019

With Surrey’s 2020 Vitality Blast season set to get under way with the biggest match of the lot – a Kia Oval London Derby – it’s a good time to look at what the match has had in store for us in recent years.

Middlesex will make the short trip south of the River Thames to get the Vitality Blast going with a bang on Thursday 28th May and the last few matches between the sides have seen sold out crowds treating to an evening to remember.

2015 – TC opens with bat and ball

Four overs, one wicket for just 19 runs would be an excellent day’s work for most bowlers but Tom Curran also put his hand up to open the batting as Surrey needed just 106 to win.

His role was that of a pinch hitter and with 16 from 13 balls, he went someway to pulling it off. Kumar Sangakkara’s 40 was the steady role Surrey needed to cruise to a battering of their closest rivals.

2016 – Experience takes hold

Jason Roy, Zafar Ansari and Kumar Sangakkara were the key influences as Surrey made 173 from their 20 overs. That was going to take some defending however with the likes of Brendon McCullum, Eoin Morgan, Dawid Malan and James Franklin all lining up for Middlesex.

Ravi Rampaul and Gareth Batty had to use all their experience to outshine that lineup and they did, claiming five wickets between them. McCullum was bowled by the West Indian seamer while Batty picked up the other prized wicket of Morgan. Sam Curran and Ansari also got in on the act.

2017 – Youngsters announce themselves

Ollie Pope and Sam Curran were still some way off their 20th birthday as this match came around in 2017 but the sold out Kia Oval didn’t faze them. Pope’s 31, full of all the tricks of the trade, from six turned an indefensible score into one that Surrey could get their teeth into.

Over to Sam to claim figures of 3/28 after Jade Dernbach had removed McCullum for a duck. Yet another victory over the enemy!

2018 – Well, Finch

Just watch the video below. We’re sure you remember the night. Aaron Finch certainly does.

2019 – Rivals enjoy their day out

Middlesex won their first match at The Kia Oval since 2012 thanks to Dawid Malan, who hammered 117 from just 57 balls. That took Middlesex past 200 and, despite 47 from Ollie Pope, Surrey never really got anywhere near.
