Middlesex 233 & 54-2 v Lancashire 165
So we've been off for bad light for about 30-minutes but the light has improved. That being said, tea is at 2:40pm with an inspection to take place at 2:55pm. Prior to the delay, Sam Robson and Dawid Malan had been diligent in getting Middlesex past fifty, from 16 for two. Tom Bailey, still getting the ball to leap from the Pavilion End – one drew the edge of Nick Compton's bat, another crunched the fingers of Stevie Eskinazi. When Bailey bowled Eskinazi, he moved onto his career-best match figures – this is the first time he has seven across two innings.
