Surrey and Glamorgan find themselves struggling at in the bottom half of the table with three and two wins respectively. The lock horns on the evening of 31st July in a quest to rise up the ranks in the points table. Placed at the fourth spot from the bottom, a win for Glamorgan won't make much of a difference to their current ranking, but it will certainly make the job a little easier for them. For Surrey, a win here could take them to as higher as the third spot provided other results of the day go their way.
Surrey are playing this match after a long match of four days which should be enough for their players to feel fresh and rejuvenated. They registered a nine-wicket win over Somerset at home in a rain-curtailed match.
Surrey have one of the most explosive opening pairs in the world with the services of Jason Roy and Aaron Finch. Jason Roy missed the earlier part of the tournament due to international commitments, but his return to the squad immediately helped Surrey reap fruitful results.
Chasing a total of 100 runs in 10 overs, Surrey blasted to the total with 20 balls to spare and nine wickets in hand. Aaron Finch blasted 43 off just 21 deliveries while Jason Roy contributed with his 11-ball 28 to provide Surrey a quick-fire start. Earlier with the ball, Tom Curran and Riki Clarke ran through Somerset's batting lineup as the duo dismissed two wickets each. The spin and experience of Gareth Batty came in handy as he didn't allow Somerset batsmen to get away in the middle overs.
Overall, Surrey is a strong team on paper and their standings in the points table do not justify that. They need to kick-start their campaign and with Jason Roy back in the squad, they will be a tough team to get past in the tournament from now on.

After a good start in the tournament and being in a commanding position, Glamorgan have lost two matches in their last two and are languishing right in the middle of the points table. They could still rise to the third spot in the points table with a win here, thanks to their superb net run rate, but they'd need both Somerset and Sussex to lose their respective games.
Glamorgan failed to overcome their neighbors in their previous encounter, against Gloucestershire, where Michael Klinger summoned a brilliant half-century to hand Glamorgan their third loss of the tournament. Chasing a total of 197, Glamorgan batsmen failed to get going as Andrew Tye dismissed three of their batsmen. Glamorgan started off rather poorly as Gloucestershire got off to a flying start, thanks to a drop by Kiran Carlson.
Their seamers failed to put any breaks whatsoever on Gloucs' scoring rate as they raced to 91 in the tenth over. Andrew Salter and Rory Smith bowled well in the middle overs as they picked three wickets in the space of just nine deliveries. However, excellent batting by Klinger coupled with some poor death bowling saw Gloucestershire score 197 which proved to be too much to handle for Glamorgan batsmen.
Barring Aneurin Donald, Colin Ingram, and Usman Khawaja, no Glamorgan batsman looked comfortable in handling Andrew Tye's variation which eventually became the reason for the downfall of Glamorgan in this important match.

It is an important match for both the sides as a win here could be the turning point they're looking for in the competition. While both the sides are a little over-reliant on a couple of batsmen, Surrey's batting appears to be better on paper. Stopping Jason Roy and Aaron Finch could be difficult for Glamorgan's batsmen and therefore we believe Surrey as the better-placed team to emerge victorious in the upcoming match.
