Trott the hero for Warwickshire

Surrey set dismally low target

Set just 137 to win, Warwickshire cruised to victory with 118 balls to spare for the loss of just two wickets.

Tim Ambrose was also unbeaten at the close on 22, after captain Ian Bell had fallen for 17 and Sam Hain for 12. Rory Burns top-scored for Surrey with 40.

Trott thanks his bowlers

 'The bowlers did such a good job. We only had to chase so small (a total) and take our time to get ourselves in,' Trott told Sky Sports.

'We said we would just play normally like we are chasing 230, 240 and have that mindset and it's always important when chasing those totals to be positive.

'It's always nice to win games of cricket and contribute. Big games here at Lord's are fantastic to be a part of and hopefully I have a few games left.'

Trott with the winning shot

South Africa-born Trott, who retired from international cricket in May 2015, settled the match with a cover drive off the bowling of Sam Curran.

Bell told BBC radio: 'Trotty was outstanding. If I could choose one person to knock off a total like that, it would be Jonathan Trott.'

Surrey collapse

Surrey had started steadily, advancing to 99-2, only to collapse, losing eight wickets for 37 runs in just 15 overs.

Three batsmen failed to score, including veteran skipper Gareth Batty, who was handed an England recall on Friday after 11 years in the international wilderness.

Chris Woakes was Warwickshire's stand-out bowler, but Oliver Hannon-Dalby and spinners Jeetan Patel and Ateeq Javid also took two wickets each.

It was a second successive One-Day Cup final loss for Surrey.

'We've not really turned up for a game of cricket. To lose in this manner is a little bit embarrassing,' beaten captain Batty told Sky Sports.

Total was "never enough"

'One-hundred-and-thirty-six wasn't enough. That's for all of us to take on the chin together. We got it wrong, fundamentally. If you get it wrong, you don't get a second chance.'
