Lancs 15:17 - Sep 16 with 1945 viewswimborne_dale

on the cusp of winning Div 2.
Need just 5 points from 2 games now. In the County Championship it would be hard not to score 5 points from 2 games.

Making heavy weather of our first innings, just made one point, but will see how Middlesex get on with the bat

Wonder if Jimmy Anderson will make a comeback in the final game?

Confirmed.

Lancs 2 batting points, Northants (the only team that could have caught us) all out for 1 batting point, leaving 4 points missed. So we cannot now be caught.

Last wicket stand of 30 between Croft & Onions gaining that 2nd point

Hope the lads don't overdo the champagne during the break!

At stumps 39 for 6, so I think we can say that the champagne was firmly on ice.

That’s just capped a tremendous summer of cricket. Hopefully we can get Maxwell back next year and make a decent fist of the First Division.

Great performance from Bailey today. If he had been available for the whole season we would have won this league while still in second gear. Dane Vilas has been outstanding this season as well. Like every team next season we need an opening bat who can regularly get through the first change and take 20 overs of the new ball. Mind, if we did get one, England would take him on a central contract in a flash. Would Atherton come out of retirement!!!
The 7/4 that was on offer at the start of the season looked tight back then, but the layers got this league spot on.

Middlesex 132-6 at lunch, 98 run partnership and no wickets this morning

Maybe the celebrations took place last night!

First innings deficit of 78 conceded, unbelievable after reducing them to 34-6, and Davies gone already

It'd be a shame if they let their standards drop. They've not lost a championship game all season and need to stay professional

I’ve been watching this on and off today and as much as you have to tip your hat to Simpson for a fine innings, he was too easily backed up. Definitely looks a case of foot-off-the-gas syndrome.

Unless we get another centurion this innings I can see a first defeat of the season coming. A real shame, as Middlesex have been rank this season.

But with Davies gone and night watchman Mahmood in, its looking iffy already.

Mahmood did well

Slowly building a credible second innings lead around Jennings after yesterday's post-championship comedown

I'm following with cautious optimism. We're effectively 142-3. I reckon we need at least another 150 runs to be in with a shout of winning the match.

It would be great to have an unbeaten season so in this instance I think not losing is more important than winning. Keep batting until there is virtually no chance of a win for Middlesex. 150 ahead now with 7 wickets left so if we can get to the middle of the morning session tomorrow perhaps we could declare & still have a reasonable chance of the win ( or a huge slog after tea today and leave 3 sessions)

A draw now seems unlikely

211 ahead at stumps, 2 wickets in hand

Could be an exciting finish with good weather forecast

As good as could be expected with only two wickets left this morning. Croft deserves great credit.

Up to the field now to either restrict the runs or take us the wickets for victory.

The trophy presentation takes place after the match, so it would be nice to get it on the back of a win.

Aye but Mahmood has just gone for 16 in his first over. We ripped through the top-order batsmen in the first innings before it went tits up. Hopefully not a repeat here.

Mahmood has just bowled his second over - a maiden!

Looks like Middlesex are shutting up shop and not going for the win

Very good season and let's hope we can put together a good performance at a higher level next year. Let's hope for a strong overseas player ( Steve Smith anyone !!)

Sods law that I listened to most of the last 2 days but had to go out for 30 minutes with 9 down and missed the last wicket.
