Middlesex moved out of the relegation zone following an impressive eight wicket win against championship title rivals Warwickhsire.

21 wickets went on the first day on a seam-friendly pitch at Edgbaston. Nathan Bamber recorded match figures of 9-91, the ever reliable Ryan Higgins 4–37, and there were also useful contributions from Tim Helm and recalled captain Toby Roland-Jones.

Once again Middlesex failed to add to their seasons two batting points but established a 139 first innings lead, Ryan Higgins 53 and Josh De Caires 37 that left them requiring 99 for victory, Mark Stoneman leading them with an undefeated 52.

Middlesex Metro Bank One Day Cup campaign got off to a losing start against a young Hampshire team – a rain effected game saw the home team win by 18 runs on the DLS method, the ever reliable Ryan Higgins 78 and Joe Cracknell 64 taking the batting honours.

A rained off game v Surrey was followed by a narrow defeat against Essex Mark Stoneman 93, John Simpson 39 and Cracknell 48 saw them come within 3 runs of the home teams 298–9, Josh DeCaires 3-36.

Middlesex are currently rooted bottom of their group and will have to win their final four games to have any chance of qualifying for the semi finals.
