Tim Wigmore at Middlesex 125-2 v Surrey
One former England opener might have been dismissed, but some at Lord’s believe that, in time, Nick Gubbins might be another Middlesex product to go on to play for England. Unusually for an English opener, he seems particularly proficient against spin, as he is proving against Zafar Ansari. Gubbins is using his feet dexterously and, the ball after driving Ansari to the cover boundary, took a step down the wicket, flicked his wrists and rather disdainfully cleared long on. It was a sight to behold.
