Vitality T20 Blast is entering the last week of group games with the last 3-4 matches remaining for each team. Both Surrey and Middlesex are having a fairly good tournament so far with consistent wins. Surrey have been on a rampage winning their last 3 matches on a trot after failing to win any of their first three matches.  They will look to continue their momentum going ahead in the last phase of the league games. Middlesex is having a rollercoaster ride with alternating wins and losses in the matches so far. Middlesex need to win this match and surge ahead into the top half of the points table.

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex won their previous game against Hampshire by 19 runs. Steve Eskinazi top scored with 33 runs at the top while Josh Simpson (30 runs) and Jack Davies (23 runs) chipped in with crucial runs in the middle order. Middlesex ended with 142 runs with all their middle order batters scoring between 12-30 runs.

The bowling unit brought out their A-game to defend the average total with all the five bowlers claiming wickets at an economy rate of less than 7 RPO. Tom Helm and Tim Murtagh picked up two wickets each and had combined figures of 7-0-32-4 in the match.  Steve Finn ran through the lower middle order with 3 wickets to bowl out the opposition for just 123 runs.

Top players to bet on:

Steve Eskinazi – Eskinazi has 273 runs at a strike rate of 150. He has smashed 21 boundaries and 10 sixes so far scoring almost 60% of his runs in boundaries taking advantage of the field restrictions.

Steve Finn – Steve Finn has taken 12 wickets at an economy rate of just 6.75 RPO this season. He is the tournament’s leading wicket-taker currently and will look to make a big mark in this T20 blast season.

Weather Conditions

London will have bright sunshine and clear skies on the match day as per the weather forecasters. We expect no rain interruptions in this match.

Venue Details

Lord`s pitch is slightly on the slower side on the last couple of the matches and both teams must look to score runs with the hard new ball in power play. Spinners may a vital role in this pitch due to its slow nature. We can expect scores around 150-160 runs in this match. 

Toss: To Bowl

The ball might not come onto the bat easily in the second innings and the batsmen might struggle to time the ball. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.   

Middlesex will play on their home conditions and they have won two and tied one match in the 4 matches they played at this venue. Both teams have a good quality batting line-up with 4-5 batsmen scoring runs. Middlesex bowlers will have an upper hand as they will take confidence of the fact they successfully defended 142 runs on this pitch. We expect Middlesex to end the winning streak of Surrey owing to their advantage of playing on home conditions.
