Teams from Sussex v Durham, where Magoffin misses out. Will it turn?
Morning all it’s the morning call!
Well hello, and happy Sunday. Hope all well – it’s an absolute belting day in London, for the third day of a wonderfully poised derby. I’m Will Macpherson and I’m at Lord’s for that game, with Yas Rana, who is with me on work experience.
Middlesex are not far behind Surrey’s 313 thanks to a superb ton from Dawid Malan and some late humpty from James Franklin, who earlier took four for 40.
There are now seven other games going on. I hope the weather elsewhere is as good as it is here. Jack Brooks is six runs away from a maiden ton, for Yorkshire in the Roses match, in a brilliant stand with Jack Leaning. When will Ballance declare? At Chelmsford, Hampshire lost five wickets without scoring a run, and are in deep strife against Essex. There’s been barely any play at Taunton, where Trott and the ProtoTrott are batting together.
In Div Two, there’s been loads of rain, particularly at Leicestershire v Kent and Derbyshire v Worcestershire. Notts, unsurprisingly, are well on top against Glamorgan, who you’d think might find themselves following on this morning. There’s a new game, too! Sussex are hosting Durham. The hosts are going to bowl first, and they have Chris Jordan back.
- Middlesex 296-5 v Surrey 313

My report and roundup from yesterday, for one reason or other not entirely clear reason, has not made it online. However, Yas did a report on yesterday’s play at Lord’s for the blog. You can read that here. Feedback welcome!
