Middlesex skipper Adam Voges is tipping county team-mate Steven Finn to be part of the England selection shake-up for this winter’s Ashes tour to Australia after bowling the county to the brink of first division safety in the Specsavers County Championship top flight thisweek.
Middlesex’s tail wagged to end their first innings against Lancashire on 233 all out – after earlier subsiding to 89-7 as the home side’s bowlers then made significant inroads to leave the visitors on 113-5 as 15 wickets fell on day one.
Transitioning from county to international cricket is no simple task, and Tom Curran believes England one-day captain Eoin Morgan must take a whole host of credit for the welcoming feeling he received.
Middlesex were left to rue heavy overnight rain as the first day of their Specsavers County Championship Division One clash with Hampshire was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to unfit conditision at Uxbridge Cricket Club.
Middlesex and Yorkshire will almost certainly have to settle for a Specsavers County Championship draw following rain on day one and more rain and bad light from early afternoon onwards at Headingley on day three.
