Defending champions Surrey were forced to share the points with Scotland after rain ruined their Clydesdale Bank 40 encounter at the Oval.

Only 23 overs were possible before the weather closed in with the visitors having recovered to be 124-4.

Surrey new-ball pairing Jade Dernbach and Stuart Meaker had threatened to blow the Scots away as they were reduced to 46-4.

An unbroken stand of 78 between Jean Symes and Preston Mommsen slowed Surrey's progress before the rain halted it completely.

Scotland's South African overseas signing Symes batted particularly well for his 58 not out, reaching his half-century from just 46 balls, while Mommsen - who has played one County Championship match for Leicestershire this summer - was 30 not out from 33 balls when the weather closed in.

The point was enough to give Surrey sole ownership of the top position in Group B, while Scotland collected a fourth point of the campaign to stay fifth.
