Abbott, McAndrew in form as Aussies shine in T20 Blast

Sean Abbott was among the wickets again as South Group leaders Surrey thrashed Glamorgan by nine wickets in the Vitality Blast.

After taking 5-18 against Middlesex in the previous match, Abbott took 3-25 in a superb bowling performance on Friday to restrict the Welsh outfit to 9-107.

The Australian seamer was well supported by Gus Atkinson (3-19) and compatriot Spencer Johnson (1-4 off four overs).

Surrey raced to 1-108 in only nine overs, with Dan Lawrence (27), Dom Sibley (43 not out) and Laurie Evans' 13-ball 31 easing them to victory.

At the Utilita Bowl in Southampton, Sussex allrounder Nathan McAndrew starred with bat and ball to help his side climb to second behind Surrey with a seven-run win over Hampshire.

Sydney Thunder allrounder McAndrew hammered 32 off 11 balls to boost an underwhelming score to 8-184 and later took 1-21 as Hampshire were restricted to 3-177 in reply, despite James Vince's 53 off 37 balls.

At Chester-le-Street, New South Welshman Ben Dwarshuis defended eight runs needed off the final over as Durham completed a thrilling three-run win over Yorkshire.

Yorkshire, chasing 171, were 2-113 in the 12th over and needed four off the final ball, but left-armer Dwarshuis held his nerve and the Vikings finished on 7-167 in response to Durham's 6-170.
