  1. What a night - and goodnight!

    Well, that was eventful! And it's only the start as the T20 Blast action continues throughout the week.

    There are three games on Wednesday as Nottinghamshire Outlaws host Northamptonshire Steelbacks, Birmingham Bears entertain Derbyshire Falcons and Sussex Sharks welcome Hampshire.

    We will have a round-up of happenings from those games but our next live coverage comes on Thursday, with a quick turnaround for three of the sides who were in action tonight.

    Middlesex visit Gloucestershire, Surrey host Glamorgan and, in arguably the tie of the night, Yorkshire host Lancashire Lightning. Tasty. Tonight's game will have given the Red Rose food for thought, for sure.

    Make sure you join us for that. Until then, have a Blast...

  2. Viking conquest

    Yorkshire Vikings beat Leicestershire by 54 runs

    Well, it was a terrific win for Middlesex at Surrey but the final word has to go to Yorkshire, who produced a stunning batting performance at Leicestershire.

    Tom Kohler-Cadmore was the linchpin, sharing century partnerships with both Adam Lyth and Nicholas Pooran (below).

    Yorkshire fell just six runs of beating their own T20 Blast high total of 260 in a superlative display of batting.

    Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Nicholas Pooran.
  3. Work to do for Leicestershire and Surrey

    Middlesex top the South Group standings after that impressive victory over Surrey, who remain rock bottom with an awful run rate after two games. Who would have seen that coming?

    Yorkshire's win lifts them to fourth in the North Group, with Leicestershire second-bottom and in desperate need of a win. They will, at least, be buoyed by their batting performance tonight.

    Middlesex 209-3, Surrey 172-9

    Dawid Malan's superb 117 laid the foundations for Middlesex's first win at the Oval since 2012 and they top the South Group.

    They now have two wins from two, but Surrey, who were under strength and never got going, are rock bottom.

    Also, welcome back Toby Roland-Jones, who took 4-35 for Middlesex.


    Leicestershire 201-4 (20 overs) v Yorkshire 255-2 (20 overs)

    Well, Leicestershire gave it a good shot but the damage was done earlier.

    Conceding the second-highest T20 Blast total ever is never a good idea.

    A big win for Yorkshire, one they will hope can kickstart their 20-over campaign.

  6. Surrey 166-9 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Batty 4, Tahir 1

    So, Surrey will need 44 from the final over with just Gareth Batty and Imran Tahir at the crease.

  7. WICKET: Dernbach c Sowter b Roland-Jones 1

    Surrey 162-9 v Middlesex (target 210)

    And that will be that. Jade Dernbach holes out to Nathan Sowter just four balls after Tom Curran departed.

    No way back from here for Surrey.

  8. T Curran c Finn b Roland Jones 27

    Surrey 161-8 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Wow! That is some catch from Steve Finn, diving full length to dismiss Tom Curran, who is out for 31 off 17 balls.

    The home side need around 20 an over from here.

  9. Post update

    Surrey 157-7 v Middlesex (target 210)

    So, 53 from 18 balls needed. Unlikely but not impossible.

    Surrey will want to keep Tom Curran on strike. Oh and he lofts the first ball of the 18th over the wicketkeeper for four - 49 from 17 now.

  10. Plunkett b Sowter 5

    Surrey 155-7 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Nathan Sowter had been hit for a huge straight six by Tom Curran but keeps his composure to bowl Liam Plunkett.

  11. Clark b Helm 21

    Surrey 139-6 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Tom Helm picked up the key wicket of Aaron Finch and now has Jordan Clark, who takes a big swing and a miss.

    Liam Plunkett is in with Surrey's hopes resting with Tom Curran.

  12. Post update

    Leicestershire 158-3 (16 overs) v Yorkshire 255-2

    Hang on. If they keep going at this rate, they have a chance! Dom Bess' over goes for 23, including three sixes!

  13. Surrey 137-5 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Curran 14, Clark 18

    Just five overs left and Surrey need 73 to win. Mujeeb ur Rahman has finished with figures of 1-27.

  14. Post update

    Leicestershire 135-3 (15 overs) v Yorkshire 255-2

    Just the 121 required off 30 balls for Leicestershire then.

    Unlikely, to say the least. But they have given it a right good go. They could just have done with a bit more help from their bowlers earlier on.

  15. Surrey 129-5 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Tom Curran really should be out but his skyward shot falls between Toby Roland-Jones and Nathan Sowter. That's hard on Steven Finn.

    Jordan Clark then hits the last two balls for 10 runs.

  16. Surrey 113-5 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Curran 10, Clark 1

    Tom Curran picks up the scoring, hitting two boundaries off Nathan Sowter, both tickled off his legs.

  17. WICKET: Clarke c Gubbins b Roland-Jones 9

    Surrey 105-5 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Toby Roland-Jones.

    Surrey are having to throw caution to the wind now - and when you have very few wickets in hand that's a dangerous thing.

    Rikki Clarke hit two of the four deliveries he faced to the boundary but when he tried to pull Toby Roland-Jones for six, Nick Gubbins was there on the ropes to take a fairly routine catch.

    Albeit, he did have to watch his step. Take note, Trent Boult.

  18. WICKET: Pope c Sowter b Roland-Jones 47

    Surrey 94-4 v Middlesex (target 210)

    Ollie Pope misses out on his fifty - either side of Nathan Sowter and it's six runs but he picks out the fielder.

  19. WICKET: Cosgrove c Ballance b Bess 31

    Leicestershire 82-2 (10 overs) v Yorkshire 255-2

    That will probably be that for Leicestershire. It looked a forlorn hope from the moment Yorkshire posted the second highest Blast total ever.

    But at exactly the halfway point of the contest, Leicestershire are well behind the rate and have now lost a second wicket as Mark Cosgrove is caught by Gary Ballance.

  20. Stoneman b Sowter c Eskinazi 29

    Surrey 79-3 v Middlesex (target 210)

    An eventful over ends with Mark Stoneman sending a Nathan Sowter delivery into the London sky and Stephen Eskinazi is under it.

    AB de Villiiers also puts down Ollie Pope but looks to have damaged a finger in diving for the catch.

    At halfway Middlesex were 109-0.
