Jon Culley at Warks 141-5 v Middlesex
Matt Lamb, making only his second appearance in the Championship, is beginning to grow in confidence after an ultra-cautious start. Off the mark to the first ball he faced, he added a couple more during the next over but then went 28 balls without scoring a run, presumably following the guidance of Jonathan Trott at the other end. But then Trott was out, lobbing a return catch to Tom Helm off a mistimed pull, since when Lamb has come out of his shell. He pulled Helm through midwicket for his first boundary – his first in first-class cricket, in fact – off his 49th ball and has since added a couple more. And with Tim Ambrose just gone for four, leg before playing back to Ryan Higgins, there is some responsibility now on his 20-year-old shoulders.
