Match scorecard

Surrey qualified for the One-Day Cup knockout stages despite rain causing their game at Gloucestershire to be called off without a ball being bowled.

Sussex could have taken third place had they won at Hampshire, but rain forced their match to be abandoned.

Somerset’s fixture at Middlesex was also called off, meaning Somerset finish second in the South Group.
