Surrey are always tough to beat on their home turf.
Surrey will be up against Northamptonshire in the Group 1 contest of the English One Day Cup 2021 on Friday. Surrey are one of the strongest contenders in Group 1 and they have played to the expectations. They won two consecutive matches against Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire and moved to the top spot in the standings with 4 points.
Meanwhile, Northamptonshire didn’t start well in this tournament as they lost their opening game to Glamorgan by 59 runs. They did well to restrict Yorkshire for 222 runs in their 2nd game but the rain had different plans, came along, and spoiled the party. They should be on top of their game to beat the mighty Surrey unit.
