London rivalry resumes in opening home T20 Blast clash at Lord’s

Middlesex’s opening home NatWest T20 Blast clash in 2017 sees Dawid Malan’s men going head to head with London rivals Surrey under the floodlights at Lord’s on Thursday 13th July.

An enthralling corresponding fixture last season saw Middlesex hit 200 to win, chasing down Surrey’s total of 196, to record their highest ever run-chase in the fourteen-year history of the competition in front of a capacity crowd at the Home of Cricket.

Prior to taking on Surrey, Middlesex face an away trip to Cheltenham on Friday 7th July, where they’ll face Gloucestershire in the opening fixture of their campaign.

Lord’s will host three other Thursday evening clashes, against Essex on 27th July, Hampshire on 3rd August and Sussex on 10th August, each played under the lights.

Middlesex’s three other remaining T20 Blast encounters will each be played at outground venues; against Somerset on Sunday 16th July at Uxbridge, Kent on Thursday 20th July at Old Deer park Richmond and against Gloucestershire on Tuesday 15th August again at Uxbridge. 

Don't forget to keep an eye out for the full fixture list for the 2017 season which we'll be unveiling at midnight tonight!
