South Division

Middlesex won the contest between the two bottom-placed teams in the South Division, beating Surrey by seven wickets at at The Oval. Surrey made a promising start after choosing to bat with openers, Michael Brown and Chris Jordan, adding 76. Jordan made a sedate 28, leaving most of the scoring to Brown, before he was run out by Dawid Malan.

Brown held up one end, scoring 77 off only 54 balls, but his dismissal with the score on 141 proved a turning point, depriving Surrey of the finish they needed. Usman Afzaal scored 25 off 17 balls as Surrey finished on 160 for 5 with Malan bowling a restrictive spell of 0 for 17 in four overs.

Middlesex lost Billy Godleman, who was bowled by Jordan, early during their chase but Owais Shah, batting at No.3, stepped up with a half-century. He scored 61 off 41 balls with three sixes while Neil Dexter and Malan batted around him, contributing 20 and 38 respectively and remained unbeaten to lead Middlesex to victory in the 19th over.
