Surrey are having a golden run this season. They are at the top of the table in the South Group with 13 points and a net run rate of +1.633. They are yet to lose a game and have looked unbeatable so far. They will be facing Middlesex next who they have beaten comprehensively in their last game. Middlesex are third from last in the table with just 6 points and a poor net run rate of -1.119. Surrey will start as clear favorites for this match.
Everything’s going right for Surrey this season – they are winning everything, their batting looks strong, and their bowling unit keeps delivering. They defeated Middlesex by 20 runs in their last game after posting a massive 208-7 on the board. Jason Roy, who blasted 81 off 45 balls in the match against blasted, is now the leading run-getter of the team with 219 runs at a strike rate of 150. The aggressive opener started slowly in the season but is now looking in terrific touch.
Opener Will Jacks has also been in great touch and has collected 206 runs at 146. While Sam Curran has failed in the last two matches, the all-rounder is expected to come good soon.
Surrey’s bowling has delivered even in tough situations. In the last game, on a batting pitch at Lord's, captain Chris Jordan bowled a terrific spell of 4-31 off his 4 overs. Off-spinner Sunil Narine was miserly as ever and gave away only 28 runs off 4 overs while taking 2 wickets. His economy rate of just 5.20 in the middle-overs is one of the prime reasons why Surrey has won so many games.

After starting the season with three consecutive losses, Middlesex has lost five games in a row. This has severely upset their chances and they face an uphill task as they face Surrey again. Captain Stephen Eskinazi is their leading run-getter with 259 runs at 176.19. Fellow opener Max Holden (194 runs at 150.38) and Joe Cracknell (193 runs at 124.51) have been their other two consistent performers. Eoin Morgan hasn’t got going in the 3 matches he’s played and his form could be detrimental for Middlesex.
On the bowling front, Middlesex have done a fair job. Martin Andersson is amongst the top wicket-takers of the season with 15 scalps at an economy of 9.22. Toby Roland-Jones (10 wickets at 8.47) has been really good at the start too. Australian pacer Jason Behrendorff has been economical, though he’s picked only 4 wickets. Then there’s off-spinner Chris Green with 8 wickets at 9.11.

The pitch at Kennington Oval is usually even and has something both for the batters and seam bowlers. Even spinners tend to get some purchase after 10-odd overs. This wicket is relatively new and is likely to favor the batters more currently.
The highest score at Kennington Oval is a colossal 240-3 by Glamorgan. We saw Surrey come close to the total this season when they hammered 228-4 against Hampshire earlier this season. Totals above 190 have been achieved 14 times here.
Out of the 58 matches played on the venue, 33 have been won by the team batting second. The team winning the toss might look to chase here.
Surrey has won all the last 5 games they have played against Middlesex, including one just last week. They are on a terrific winning run and will be hard to stop. Middlesex’s best chance is to restrict Surrey’s strong batting, but that’s easier said than done. Even going past Surrey’s bowling won’t be easy for Middlesex.
Back Surrey as the winners of this clash.
