The two sides last met in the second quarterfinal in Leeds on 13 June 2017. Surrey batted first and after losing the early wicket of Stoneman, rallied through a second-wicket partnership between Scott Borthwick and Kumar Sangakkara. They were reduced to 70/3 in the 15th over when Rory Burns lost his wicket. Then came a partnership of 180 for the fourth wicket between Sangakkara and Ben Foakes that laid the foundation for the eventual score of 313 for seven. Sangakkara made a top score with 121 from 121 balls while Foakes contributed 86 from 88 balls. For Yorkshire, Azeem Rafiq took 3/51, while Tim Bresnan, Ben Coad and Karl Carver took a wicket each.
When Yorkshire batted, they lost an early wicket at 31/1 in the seventh over but a 95-run stand for the second wicket followed by a 64-run partnership for the fourth saw them well poised to chase down the target at 195/4 in the 38th over. But a late-order collapse saw Yorkshire restricted to 289/9 in their allotted overs. Adam Lyth made a top score with 75 from 83 balls while Jack Leaning made 42 from 59 and Peter Handscomb contributed 60 from 50. For Surrey, Jade Dernbach and Tom Curran took two wickets each while Ravi Rampaul was the most impressive bowler, taking 3/54.
