LAST TIME OUT

Surrey and Warwickshire played out a thrilling tie at The Kia Oval on Sunday. Surrey’s Matt Dunn was bowled by Warwickshire seamer Liam Norwell to snatch victory away from Surrey with five balls remaining.

After losing the toss on a beautiful day in SE11,  Surrey could only restrict the Warwickshire batters to 293-5. This included an impressive 160-run fourth wicket partnership between Michael Burgess and Indian international Krunal Pandya.

In reply, Surrey slumped to 31-3 after losing captain Ben Geddes, Ryan Patel and Cameron Steel early on. Notable middle order contributions from both Josh Blake and Nico Reifer with 40 and 53 respectively led a Surrey recovery. However, it was Nick Kimber’s explosive 84 off 51 balls that accelerated Surrey towards Warwickshire’s large total. Matt Dunn added a quickfire 34. However, with scores tied on 293, he was dismissed by a Liam Norwell yorker with five balls remaining in the innings. Watch the highlights here.

SURREY SQUAD

MIDDLESEX

Middlesex have had mixed fortunes in their opening two matches of the Royal London One-Day Cup. A close defeat to a strong Leicestershire side in their opening match of the competition was followed by a dominant nine wicket victory over Durham. Middlesex captain, Stephen Eskinazi looked in imperious touch with the bat against Durham, cruising to 146 runs in 132 balls.

Fast bowler Umesh Yadav, who has taken over 260 Test and ODI wickets combined for India has led a Middlesex bowling attack that couples youth with experience. Yadav took a five wicket haul in their last match against Durham.

There’s also a familiar face in the Middlesex top order in the shape of former Surrey opener Mark Stoneman.

Luke Hollman is the player to watch for Middlesex. The leg spinning all-rounder has started the Royal London One-Day Cup in style, taking seven wickets in the opening two matches.
