Venue Details

Kennington Oval`s pitch is slightly on the slower side and both teams must look to score runs in the 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.  This is the second match of the day on this pitch.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has 14-11 win-loss ratio in their favor so far in the league. Teams have succumbed to pressure while chasing with matches being tied and lost by close margins.  

Winning Prediction

Surrey has a slightly weaker batting unit in terms of big-hitting capability when compared to Middlesex on paper. But Surrey has the bowling arsenal to excel on this track and they have won one and tied one match played here so far. Middlesex relies on their pace bowlers and they need to apply themselves on this slow track with cutters and variations. We expect Surrey to win this contest owing to their playing experience on this track.

SURREY will win this match.
