MID vs SUR Dream11 Match Predictions

T20 Vitality Blast, 2018

Middlesex vs Surrey, South Group

When and where:

Placed in South Group, Middlesex and Surrey will begin their T20 Vitality Blast, 2018 journey tomorrow (July 5) when they will meet at Lord’s London.

Surrey, who have won the title in 2003 and are one of the two finalists in 2014, will be boosted by the signing of Morne Morkel. The South African pacer had an excellent outing in the County Championship. Apart from him, Ollie Pope has also announced to feature in the shortest format of the game for Surrey and will have eyes upon him.

On the opposite, like 2017, Middlesex, will be guided by Daniel Vettori again after their head coach-R Scott left the position on Monday. Middlesex won the title back in 2008 and would be eyeing on the title again with the likes of  Dwayne Bravo and Ashton Agar. Dwayne Bravo has signed for Middlesex and will be available for only 5-7 games only.
