Nick Compton returns
Nick Compton (remember him?) returned to action today after requesting a break to recharge his energy levels and generally contemplate life following his axing from England's Test side.
Compton was out cheaply while turning out for Middlesex 2nd X1 against their Warwickshire counterparts at the Edgbaston Foundation ground in Birmingham.
Middlesex have done well in his absence, moving to the top of the Championship, with Steve Eskinazi making the most of his 1st XI chance with two hundreds in a week against Lancashire (his maiden hundred) and Yorkshire.
That could give Middlesex a tough selection problem. Dawid Malan has been called up by England Lions but that short series will end before Middlesex's next Championship match against Surrey at Lord's on August 4.
Another possibility is that Sam Robson gets an England return, leaving Compton to work his way back that way.
