Middlesex open their Friends Provident Trophy campaign with a home game against Scotland at Lord's on Sunday, writes Patrick Mooney.
Then, on Tuesday Shaun Udal's side make the short trip to Southgate for their second County Championship fixture against Leicestershire.
Udal was misled by an initial tinge of green in the Lord's pitch on Wednesday and opted to field first in Middlesex's opening Championship clash against Glamorgan.
And he was left to squirm as the visitor's Mark Cosgrove took charge. The 24-year-old upstaged fellow Aussie left-hander Phil Hughes on his Middlesex debut at Lord's, hammering 17 boundaries in his 120. Cosgrove was backed by half-centuries from Mark Wallace (58 not out) and Mike Powell (51) in Glamorgan's 351-6 at the close.
