Tim Wigmore at Yorkshire 16-3 v Middlesex
And now Alex Lees edges a lifter from Toby Roland-Jones to second slip. This is very tame indeed from Yorkshire.
Tim Wigmore at Yorkshire 16-2 v Middlesex
Middlesex were denied a victory at Lord’s earlier this season, against Essex, by a combination of a cautious decision not to enforce the follow on and fourth day showers. So with a threat of rain tomorrow, they opted to enforce the follow on today. It already looks an excellent decision: Tim Murtagh has accounted for Adam Lyth, neatly caught behind, and then Harry Brook, flashing aberrantly at a short delivery outside offstump, within three balls. Yorkshire are 16-2, still 222 runs shy of making Middlesex bat again, and Gary Ballance is back at the wicket, 37 minutes after the end of his excellent 69 not out. Three day finish?
