NICK COMPTON

Middlesex batsman Nick Compton has announced his retirement from cricket.

Three memories. A trio of insights into character as much as talent. It is 2011 - the last time Middlesex's County Cricket Club's won promotion - and a Sydney-born Australian with an English mother and a British passport is batting with Andrew Strauss at Lord's.

Middlesex left-arm spinner Ravi Patel is hoping history can repeat itself as they battle for survival at Somerset.

Rain stops play on day three for Middlesex

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Somerset's charge towards safety in the Specsavers County Championship First Division was halted by the weather on the third day of the relegation clash with Middlesex at Taunton.

Wickets continued to tumble on an overcast day at Lord's as Middlesex gained a slight advantage on a match destined to end within three days if the weather holds.

Middlesex's tail wagged to end their first innings against Lancashire on 233 all out - after earlier subsiding to 89-7 as the home side's bowlers then made significant inroads to leave the visitors on 113-5 as 15 wickets fell on day one.

Middlesex and Yorkshire will almost certainly have to settle for a Specsavers County Championship draw following rain on day one and more rain and bad light from early afternoon onwards at Headingley on day three.

There was a far more serious type of drama at a Middlesex game on Thursday - after armed police were called to their County Championship match against Surrey at the Kia Oval - leading to players, officials and spectators being evacuated after a crossbow bolt landed close on the pitch.

Middlesex seamer Toby Roland-Jones was pleased with how his side bounced back on day two of their County Championship match with Surrey at The Oval.

Stuart Meaker spearheaded an impressive performance by the Surrey attack as Middlesex were hustled out for 247 on the first day of their Specsavers Championship match at the Kia Oval.

In a remarkable end to a dramatic match, Warwickshire skittled Middlesex for 136 at Lord's to claim their first win of the season in the Specsavers County Championship's Division One by a thumping 190-run margin.

Wickets tumble on first day of county championship fixture

Middlsex batmsan Nick Compton is counting down the days until Sunday, when the former England batsman's season comes out of month's mid-summer hibernation. "I've had just one innings in more than four weeks - so it will be a challenge!" he said, ahead of the defending champions' Specsavers County Championship match against Warwickshire at Lord's.
