T20 is the explosive, short-form version of cricket that mixes sporting drama with a party atmosphere, making it a fantastic summer event for a Friday evening.
Surrey play Kent on Friday July 29th in their final NatWest T20Blast game – a match that could decide which side qualifies for the quarter finals of the competition. Add in the long history of rivalry between the two counties and it promises to be a thriller.
The match starts at 6:30pm and will last around 3 hours. It’s a 10-minute walk from Vauxhall station or 2 minutes from The Oval tube.
Many of the world’s biggest names take part in The NatWest T20 Blast, which is played between the 18 leading counties in two leagues, southern and northern. Surrey can call upon destructive England star Jason Roy and the explosive Aaron Finch – the number one T20 batsman in the world. Both are renowned for powerful hitting and expansive shots.
If you’re writing about things to do with the kids, then Surrey County Cricket Club have a fantastic offer you might want to mention: children can go to any of their NatWest T20 Blast matches for just £1.
There’s non–stop action at T20 matches, big hitting, fast bowling and, normally, a finish that goes to the wire.
One hint, though – this match is likely to be a sell-out so don’t leave it too late to buy tickets.
