Neither Middlesex nor Surrey have been impressive in the ongoing edition of the English County Championship. Both of them have played six matches and have won only one of them. But in comparison, Middlesex’s situation is way worse.
The reason for that being, while Surrey have lost only twice and have drawn three matches, Middlesex have suffered a whopping five defeats. Hence, Surrey will be the favourites to win this match here at the iconic Oval in London.
