Surrey will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Middlesex in the South Group game of T20 Blast competition played at Kennington Oval in London.

In their previous match, Surrey suffered a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Somerset. With this result Surrey are lying third in the South Group table with eight points after seven matches played in the competition.

On the other hand, Middlesex have suffered back-to-back defeats against Gloucestershire and Glamorgan in the competition. The county side still has a lot of time to turn their fortunes in the competition.

The team management will be hoping that the side can deliver a decent show with bat and ball in this fixture.

In the batting department, the side will be relying on the top-order trio of Will Jacks, Laurie Evans and Jamie Smith to deliver the bulk of the runs.

Will Jacks is currently Surrey’s leading run-scorer in the T20 Blast competition. In six matches, Jacks has accumulated 194 runs at a strike rate of 186.53 with two half-centuries. He will be looking to deliver big runs for the side in this fixture.

Besides Jacks, the likes of Laurie Evans and Jason Smith have contributed well to the team’s cause so far this season.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Jamie Overton, Daniel Moriarty and Jade Dernbach to make crucial breakthroughs.

Surrey Predicted Playing XI:

Will Jacks, Jamie Smith (wk), Laurie Evans, Ben Geddes, Rory Burns, Jordan Clark, Jamie Overton, Gus Atkinson, Gareth Batty (c), Daniel Moriarty, Jade Dernbach

Paul Stirling has done consistently well for the side at the top of the innings. In the previous game, Stirling played well and scored 46 runs off 36 balls with the help of three fours and three sixes.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Steven Finn, Tim Murtagh and  Chris Green to make crucial breakthroughs.
