Tim Wigmore at Middlesex 8-0 v Yorkshire
Good morning from a sweltering Lord’s. Certainly a good day to win the toss and bat first, as Middlesex have done. It’s been a rather funereal start from Sam Robson and Nick Compton - who is still yet to score his first run. The pitch has an unusual green tinge, and Middlesex will need to bat well given they are missing three of their normal top five - Nick Gubbins, who’s with England Lions, Dawid Malan, who’s with England, and Adam Voges, who’s with the physio.
