I think logic would suggest your team selection would be correct although logic doesn't always appear to have been applied in Surrey's team selections in the Blast this year.

Do we know for certain why naughty Tom disappeared from the team last game ? There could have been a few reasons, including his form, but surely if available he must play in the hope he finds his rhythm again.

Although none of them are suited to bowling in T20 I think I would have brought in one of Meaker, Dunn or McKerr instead of Pillans for this one and taken a chance. They could hardly do worse.

Unfortunately I think the burger van has caused food poisoning, and may be out of favour for some time.

Does anyone know if Finch will be playing the CC game against Lancs?

Great comment re Burger Van, Olly! clap Sad but true.

I don't know about Finch but my guess is that he will play against Lancs. Elgar doesn't rejoin until the following match so there's a vacancy. I strongly suspect that conversations with and about Finchy are currently going on.

Agree with JimBob and Beehive about the likely team tonight and lack of logic in previous selections. I'll be very surprised if we now qualify for the knock-out stage. It's always desperate when you not only need to win two on the bounce having lost the last two but also need other results to go your way! We've been far too much of a one man team - with Finchy motoring we've looked like competition winners but you can't rely on just him and too many of the others have been ordinary or worse.

Away for a fortnight from tomorrow. Enjoy the Lancs game, Olly. OK

Sadly I think the win might not be enough as we're still reliant on Sussex slipping up and one of their matches is against the hapless Middlesex.

I'm not sure we really deserve to go through as we've been so reliant on our overseas players especially Finch of course. Despite the fact that we've recruited Plunkett there are still a lot of holes in our line up especially if we continue to lose the double act Sam and Ollie, who incidentally should have been made available for tonight's game in my opinion. One of them is going to be dropped by England anyway to reward Stokes.

Also when Batty retires, which could even be at the end of this season, who are our white ball spin options ?

Thankfully, as we all know the Championship side looks much stronger so I'm looking forward to four day cricket starting up again.

I had a look at the table and I think the equation is we need to beat Glamorgan and Sussex need to lose one of their last two games. Is that right?

That's how I see it too James. Sussex are at Gloucestershire tonight. I think that's our best chance of the door opening because their last game is Middlesex at Hove and I can't see them slipping up there.

It will be tough against Glamorgan though, despite their last performance.

Agree comments above that we'll be lucky to go through and probably don't really deserve to do so, not least on account of being massively dependent on one overseas player. But it was really that awful batting paralysis against Gloucs that did for us.
