T20 Blast is one of the oldest T20 leagues played from 2003 and has been one of the most followed leagues in the English cricketing circuit. Surrey were the inaugural champions of the T20 Blast in 2003 and they never won the title back later. They ended up as runners-up in three attempts (2004, 2013, 2020) and will look to end their title drought in this season. Middlesex too have just won only season way back in 2008 and have never qualified for semi-finals in any other season. Both teams will look to start their campaign with a victory in this match.
English county veteran Steve Eskinazi will continue to lead the Middlesex team with the duo of Max Holden and Joe Cracknell teaming up with him to form the top 3 of their batting line-ups. Wicket-keeper Josh Simpson, Jack Davies, Pieter Malan, and Luke Hollman will form the core of the batting line-up in the middle order.
Tom Helm, Toby-Roland James, Ryan Higgins, and Martin Anderson will be their key pacers in the playing XI with Rob White and Sam Robson waiting in the squad. They have a strong spin attack with Thilan Wallanwita, Luke Hollman, and Chris Green in their playing XI.
Key players: Chris Green, Luke Hollman, Max Holden

Surrey will miss their full-time skipper Chris Jordan in this match owing to his IPL duties and we expect Will Jacks to take up the duty as interim skipper. Will Jacks and Jason Roy will open the batting with a strong core of middle order with the likes of Laurie Evans, Rory Burns, Jamie Smith, Ollie Pope (subject to his national duties), Ben Foakes, and James Taylor.
They have a strong core of pace attack with the likes of Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Sean Abbott, Jamie Overton, Reece Topley, and skipper Chris Jordan in the squad. T20 veteran Sunil Narine will lead their spin attack with Will Jacks for company in the crucial overs.
Key players: Will Jacks, Sam Curran, Laurie Evans.

London will have bright and sunny weather with no chances of rain or any other weather interruptions in this match.
Lords will have a true surface with good bounce and carry and we expect the batters to enjoy playing on this surface. We expect the average scores to be around 170-180 runs in this match.
We expect the captains to chase the total if they win the toss here as the pitch eases out as the match progresses.
Surrey has a strong batting line-up with quality batters who can make big scores and take the game away from opposition easily. Middlesex too have a good batting line-up but are struggling for consistency in the lower middle order. Surrey has a slightly better bowling attack of the two owing to their experience in home conditions. We expect Surrey to win in this match.
