Nottinghamshire (57-3) v Middlesex
Tom Moores was beaten by a beauty from Finn. It was only Finn’s third ball back, but he gained lovely swing between bat and pad – it pitched middle and off and hit leg - to beat Moores’ stroke. Mullaney threw his hands at a drive and edged to slip. Lumb might have been caught on 6, too, but the gap between keeper and first slip is too big and they both left the edge for one another.
- The Verdict
We apologise for the lack of wifi at Beckenham which is preventing updates from Tim Wigmore. Obviously - and this is not the first time we have observed this - this a totally unsatisfactory state of affairs. Professional county cricket needs to achieve basic minimal standards so that the few still committed to covering the game can do so and so that fans of the game can receive a proper service. Outgrounds - and we love the principle of outgrounds - should not be freed from achieving these basic standards.
