The Surrey Lions will face the Warwickshire Bears in the quarter-finals of Twenty20 Cup in a repeat of the 2003 final.
Tickets are now on sale for the match and are available at www.surreycricket.com. The match will start at 5.30pm.
The two sides have only met once before, in the 2003 final, with Surrey running out convincing winners.
Despite the easy finals win, captain Ali Brown still sees the Bears as a huge threat to the Brown Hatters going one better than they did last year when they lost narrowly to the Leicester Foxes in last year’s final.
“They are a dangerous side and it should be a really tough match for us. We’ve had some great battles with the Bears in the past, in all forms of cricket so I expect this to be no different. Let’s hope we get a sell out crowd to the Brit Oval because it should be a great match,” Brown told www.surreycricket.com.
Warwickshire scraped into the final eight, along with Derbyshire, as both teams finished on nine points at the end of the group stage. Sussex, who also finished with nine points missed out because they had one less win than Warwickshire and Derbyshire.
It was a strong indication of how tight the South group was when you consider that Surrey topped the group with ten points. Middlesex, who finished second were equal with Sussex and Hampshire on nine points but they had one extra win.
