Middlesex suffered a heavy loss to local rivals Essex with a three day 297 run defeat.

Middlesex remain third from bottom, six points from relegation, with three games to go.

The Essex game was a personal triumph for off-spinner Josh De Caires who recorded career best figures of eight–106, and ten wickets in the game.

The visitors totalled 179 and 147, on a turning wicket. Ryan Higgins with 44 was the only batsman to get over 40 in the two innings.

Middlesex completed their Metro Bank One Day Cup campaign, finishing seventh out of nine in the southern group.

Despite only winning two of their seven games, the Surrey game was washed out. There were signs of some of the younger players coming through, and maybe making an impression in the future.

Nathan Bamber, Martin Andersson, Sam Robson and Joe Cracknell produced some notable performances, but once again the only consistent performer and a shoe-in for player of the year was Ryan Higgins, who recorded two fifties and two four wicket hauls.

Overseas batsman Pieter Malan has returned to South Africa after failing to impress his seasons total of 166 runs coming at an average of 14.73.
