Middlesex beaten by 21 runs on the road
Middlesex coach Daniel Vettori admits his side are still searching for their best form following their Natwest T20 Blast defeat against Somerset.
Fielding first, Nathan Sowter took 3-43 for Middlesex, but the hosts were still able to close on 207-9.
Paul Stirling top scored with 39 in reply for the visitors, but they could only make 186-7 before the close of play, with Vettori disappointed once more
“After four games we are still looking for consistency of performance. That consistency is missing, but there is so much talent in our team and so many things we can be better at and improve,” said Vettori.

“I think we felt that a total of 200 would be about par for that pitch and this ground, and until the last couple of overs they seemed on course for just under that.
“We let them get away from us a bit in the closing overs, and then when we batted we kept losing wickets quite regularly which didn’t allow one of our players to take control of the game and the chase.”
