T20 Vitality Blast, 2018
Surrey vs Middlesex, South Group
The South Group fixture on Friday will see Surrey take on Middlesex in what is expected to be a crucial encounter for the Eoin Morgan led-side.
With three wins in seven games, Surrey finds themselves at the fourth spot in the Points table and they’ll look to shrug off the ignominy of the last game which saw them lose to Glamorgan by four wickets. After having scored 4-194 in their 20 over thanks to a 45-ball-70 by Nic Maddinson, the bowlers weren’t able to keep the Glamorgan batsmen in check as valiant cameos from Meschede (43 off 19 balls), Graham Wagg (46) and a 32-ball-58 from Kiran Carlson helped Glamorgan pip Surrey by four wickets.
