Nottinghamshire brought their Vitality Women’s County T20 season to a close with a pair of defeats at Old Whitgiftians CC in Croydon.
A 70-run loss to Surrey was followed by a win for Middlesex by seven wickets as Martyn Kiel’s side finished their T20 campaign at the foot of the Division One table.
Sophie Munro (2-23) was the pick of the bowlers in the first clash of the day, but the Notts attack found it hard to stem the flow of runs from the Surrey top five.
Amy Gordon top-scored with 38 from 37 balls as Surrey amassed 143-4 from their 20 overs.
In reply, the Surrey attack prevented Notts from building up a head of steam, with only Yvonne Graves (12) and Hannah Hughes (17*) reaching double figures.
Danielle Gregory recorded figures of 4-12, helping to restrict the green and golds to 73-8 from their allotted overs.
Notts would bat first in their second game of the day, with skipper Lucy Higham hitting 38 from 39 balls to usher her side to 93-7.
But her performance was matched by Middlesex opener Cordelia Griffith, whose run-a-ball 37 provided early impetus to their innings.
Griffith was assisted by Sophia Dunkley (29), as the chasing side reached their target with six overs to spare for the loss of just three wickets.
