(M) Middlesex Cricket v Glamorgan ~ Monday 12 to Thursday 15 September

🏏 Middlesex Cricket welcome Glamorgan to Lord’s for their latest home match of the 2022 LV= Insurance County Championship Division Two season.  Play starts at 11am daily and ticket details are below.

Middlesex Cricket are a team on a mission this season to regain their County Championship top-flight status.  Relegation back in 2017 was a real shock coming just a season after they were crowned Division One County Champions, since when a viable promotion push has failed to materialise.  Can 2022 be their year?

Middlesex opened the season with plenty of runs coming from the bat (401 in the first inning and 258/5 declared in the second) albeit it wasn’t enough to beat Derbyshire who held out on day four for a draw.  But that match was a sign of things to come, with Middlesex embarking on a seven-match unbeaten run in red-ball cricket including 10, 7 and 6-wicket victories over Leicestershire, Sussex and Durham respectively.

With four wins and two draws, Middlesex were top of the County Championship Division Two table on 116 points heading into June, but since then the Lord’s side have stuttered with two losses and draws seeing them slip down into third place (approaching the end of July) with this week’s opponents Glamorgan one place above them in second.  Nottinghamshire are top.  Only the top two sides will be promoted to Division One.

Eight teams in total feature in Division Two – Middlesex are joined by Durham, Glamorgan, Leicestershire, Sussex, Nottinghamshire, Worcestershire and Derbyshire.

👀 ONES TO WATCH: Toby Roland-Jones has been in brilliant form with the ball for Middlesex in the County Championship.  His 10-wicket haul against Durham at the end of May – including a second innings 6-35 – inspired Middlesex to a commanding victory which saw them retain top spot in Division Two.  Sam Robson has been similarly commanding with the bat for the Lord’s side, contributing 84 in the first innings against Durham.  That followed Robson’s 101 not out against Nottinghamshire earlier in May, to ensure a draw for Middlesex which kept them top of the table – his second century in successive matches after he top-scored with 149 against Sussex to take Middlesex to the summit.
