Middlesex will face Surrey in a south-group contest in the sixth round of the Vitality T20 Blast 2023. On Thursday, May 25, the Lord’s Stadium in London will host this intriguing match.
Middlesex will be hoping for a new beginning this season after a terrible season last year. The club won just four of their 14 games as they placed eighth in the standings with eight points.
The team will benefit greatly from the arrival of Pieter Malan and Ryan Higgins as they aim to begin their season this year with a victory.
On the other hand, Surrey was denied a well-deserving championship last year when they were eliminated from the competition after falling to Yorkshire in the quarterfinals. With 21 points and victories in 10 of its 14 games, the squad finished first in the South group’s points standings.
The team captained by Sam Curran will want to build on last year’s performance and inch closer to the championship.
