Finn Allen's unbeaten 51-ball 73 and Tom Hartley (4-0-18-1) handed Lancashire their second on the bounce as they eased past Leicestershire by 16 runs. After opting to bat, Allen carried his bat to give Lancashire a fighting score of 172 with the next best effort coming from Liam Livingstone who made 25 off 12.

Scott Steel made 54, Josh Inglis got 34 and Leicestershire even had a superb start where the pair made 47 in 4.4 overs. However, Inglis's wicket stalled the momentum and derailed the chase.

The opening pair of Roy and Jacks put up 95 in 8.2 overs and the other batsmen carried the momentum ahead to give Surrey a dominating total. Sam Curran then led the clinical display on the day with figures of 4 for 29.

Paul Stirling made 58 in the chase but middle-order meltdown meant the chase never really took off.

Brief scores: Surrey 223/7 in 20 overs (Will Jacks 70; Nathan Sowter 3-40) beat Middlesex 169/9 in 20 overs (Paul Stirling 58; Sam Curran 4-29) by 54 runs.
