Top Ten #Blast17 Moments - Number Nine
The first night of Blast 17 delivered an absolute thriller as Surrey took on the Essex Eagles at Chelmsford.
With Essex requiring 10 off the last six balls, and six wickets in hand, Curran claimed the key wickets of Ravi Bopara and Ashar Zaidi to claim a memorable victory.
Bopara's dismissal off the second ball of the over ended a 46-ball 75, with five sixes, that looked to have put Essex in the driving seat.
Earlier Surrey had posted a challenging total of 188 after being put in to bat.
However, it had looked as though sixes from successive deliveries bowled by Jade Dernbach in the penultimate over by Bopara - one straight, the other over long leg - meant Essex needed less than two runs a ball from the final over.
The first ball went for two, but Tom Curran found the extra pace to beat Bopara from the next. With five required off two balls, Curran added the scalp of Ashar Zaidi, bowled to a full-length ball. The boundary required from the final ball was beyond James Foster.
