George Dobell at Middlesex (23-1) v Yorkshire
Morning from Lord’s where there are as many people in the press box as there were for Saturday’s final. Yorkshire have already taken the wicket of Sam Robson – who fell over a leg-stump yorker – having not bothered with the toss and put Middlesex in on a green-looking surface. Despite the turn evident on Saturday, both sides have only one spinner. There’s been lots of talk about the absence of a few Yorkshire players and less about the absence of Middlesex’s Eoin Morgan, who hasn’t played a Championship match this season.
