NatWest T20 Blast - May 30

Coverage of the start of Game Week 3, focusing on Surrey v Middlesex

  • Over 4 - Middlesex 16-2 (Malan 9, Denly 0)
    Looking a very good toss for Surrey to have won here. The ball is swinging both ways and zipping off the pitch nicely and Dernbach beats Denly comprehensively outside off stump to end an over costing just five (including two wides)

    5/30/2014 5:50:28 PM
  • Over 5 - Middlesex 27-2 (Malan 10, Denly 10) [six]
    There we go! Denly shows his class by dispatching Mahmood straight down the ground and all the way for the first of what we hope will be many sixes this evening. Middlesex beginning the rebuilding process...
    5/30/2014 5:53:23 PM
  • SIX! Denly smashes this delivery. Middlesex on 27-2 after 5.1 overs:

  • Denly ct Wilson bld Curran 14 [wicket]

    After another glorious straight boundary, Denly perishes attempting to run new bowler Curran down to third man. Faint snick behind
    5/30/2014 5:57:42 PM
  • #BOOM ! Aaron Finch doesn't take long to get started. Launches a maximum back over the bowler's head. #HammerTime

    YOR 13-0 (1.1)
  • Over 6 - Middlesex 33-3 (Malan 11, Dexter 0)
    That wicket brings an end to the six-over powerplay, which has gone the way of Surrey's seamers. Dexter is the new batsman alongide Malan
    5/30/2014 5:58:41 PM
  • FAST START! Has Tom Smith got a cab waiting? He's in a hurry tonight. He's hit 36no incl. 7 boundaries. @LancsCCC 56-2 (7.2)
  • Over 7 - Middlesex 38-3 (Malan 16, Dexter 0)
    Ireland all-rounder Kevin O'Brien sneaks an over in, costing just five runs, all for Malan. You get the feeling this partnership is make or break for Middlesex...
    5/30/2014 6:02:26 PM
  • Wickets tumbling like Pompeii high-rises @TrentBridge . Mullaney 4-25, Carter 3-22. Durham on the ropes, limping along on 111-8 (17)
  • [andrewstrauss] Unfortunately Malan has been playing something of a lone hand so far for Middlesex this season in t20 cricket and the same is true today. He is in good form in all formats bu the needs some help tonight.

    5/30/2014 6:05:16 PM
  • Over 8 - Middlesex 39-3 (Malan 17, Dexter 0)
    Really impressive bowling from Curran. He is getting some nip back into the right-handed Dexter and has a strong lbw appeal turned down on height. Just a single off the eighth over
    5/30/2014 6:06:54 PM
  • Over 9 - Middlesex 44-3 (Malan 18, Dexter 4)
    The pressure was beginning to mount heavily on Dexter's shoulders after 12 dot balls. Something had to give, and it did final ball when Dexter got down on one knee and flicked O'Brien over short fine-leg for four
    5/30/2014 6:09:34 PM
  • Ten overs gone in Cardiff, the Sharks are 79/1 with Joyce 29 and Prior 26 #sharklove
  • Over 10 - Middlesex 51-3 (Malan 19, Dexter 10) [50]
    Middlesex reach 50 in streaky fashion at the end of the 10th over. Curran found Dexter's edge on the drive but Wilson was unmoved behind the stumps and the ball split him and first slip and found the boundary
    5/30/2014 6:11:49 PM
  • Dexter bld Batty 10 [wicket]

    Dexter skips down the pitch to off-spinner Batty, attempts the big heave-ho, but is done in the flight and comprehensively bowled.
    5/30/2014 6:14:02 PM
  • Durham post 132-8
    Notts will need 134 to beat Durham at Trent Bridge. Steve Mullaney took four wickets for the Outlaws, Andy Carter chipped in with three. Gordon Muchall's unbeaten 31 the highlight for the Jets
    5/30/2014 6:16:16 PM
  • Over 11 - Middlesex 56-4 (Malan 22, Christian 2)
    Batty showing all his nous there to pick up the wicket of Dexter, who never really got going. Five runs off the Surrey spinner, including two for Middlesex's new batsman and overseas recruit, Dan Christian
    5/30/2014 6:17:39 PM
  • Richard Oliver's had his weetabix today. He's tonked 38 off 15. @WorcsCCC are steaming toward their 135 target. WOR 65-0 (5)
  • Christian lbw Curran 2 [wicket]

    Fantastic bowling from young Curran. He gets one to nip back in off the seam and trap Australian all-rounder Christian plumb in front of middle. Surrey on fire!
    5/30/2014 6:20:43 PM
  • WICKET! Middlesex lose another, and are now looking precarious on 57/5:

  • Over 12 - Middlesex 57-5 (Malan 22, Simpson 0)
    Only one run to go with the wicket of Christian. All the onus now on Malan to make Middlesex competitive. Curran really making a name for himself tonight
    5/30/2014 6:22:01 PM
  • Dig deep if you can if you see any charity collections at your game today. Here at the Oval, Surrey are supporting the Evelina London Children's Hospital.

    5/30/2014 6:23:13 PM
  • Over 13 - Middlesex 61-5 (Malan 25, Simpson 2)
    Batty speeds through his second over - conceding just four singles. Wicketkeeper John Simpson is the new batsman. He's been in good form in four-day cricket, can he push the accelerator for the Panthers here?
    5/30/2014 6:24:00 PM
  • Lancashire 100-5 [100]
    Lancs reach three figures in the 15th over against Birmingham Bears. A Agathangelou 17* & J Clark 9* at the crease
    5/30/2014 6:25:39 PM
  • Simpson ct and bld O'Brien 3 [wicket]

    Middlesex in tatters now as Simpson presents a sharp return catch to O'Brien, who sticks out a hand and holds on spectacularly. Everything is going Surrey's way tonight!
    5/30/2014 6:26:56 PM
  • WICKET! Stunning bit of play by O'Brien, who leaves John Simpson caught and bowled! Surrey flying:

  • Over 14 - Middlesex 64-6 (Malan 26, Roland-Jones 0)
    Surrey are into the tail now as Roland-Jones walks to the middle
    5/30/2014 6:28:08 PM
  • Paul Allott on O’Brien’s catch...

    Simpson just checked the stroke and it was a bit inside edge-ish but it was a really good return catch – he had no time at all to react and they stick or they don’t. That one did!”

    5/30/2014 6:29:32 PM
  • Over 15 - Middlesex 66-6 (Malan 28, Roland-Jones 1)
    Reaching 100 is looking like an achievement for Middlesex now. Batty, fresh from his 8-for in the County Championship this week, is giving nothing away. Just two singles off his third over
    5/30/2014 6:31:27 PM
  • Over 16 - Middlesex 71-6 (Malan 28, Roland-Jones 6)
    A very welcome boundary for Middlesex after O'Brien starts with four dot balls. Roland-Jones slogs the fifth over midwicket to reach the rope. A few more of those required with just 24 balls remaining
    5/30/2014 6:33:55 PM

    5/30/2014 6:34:50 PM
  • Over 17 - Middlesex 88-6 (Malan 33, Roland-Jones 13) [six]
    17 from the over! Roland-Jones and Malan both dispatch Batty for straight sixes to finally give the Middlesex fans something to cheer. Batty ends with 1-28 from his four overs
    5/30/2014 6:36:45 PM
  • MO GO! Moeen Ali can clock off for the evening, but he earns a pat on the back. He's dismissed for 41 off 25. WOR 91-1 chasing 135.
  • UPDATE: @YorkshireCCC closing in on victory, 118-2 (12); Lees 56* and Bairstow 24*. Need 10 more to win #YORvDER
  • WICKET. A big one too - @rushworth22 bowls Hales - middle stump is ripped out of the ground. Hales made 5, 9-1 after 3 overs.
  • Time for Malan's Middlesex to go very large...

    5/30/2014 6:41:19 PM
  • Over 18 - Middlesex 100-6 (Malan 38, Roland-Jones 24) [six]
    Shot! Roland-Jones is playing a useful cameo here. He rocks back and pulls Dernbach for a glorious six over midwicket and then follows that up with an even better cover drive for four more. Middlesex reach 100, something that didn't look possible three overs ago
    5/30/2014 6:41:27 PM
    Alex Lees 61* & Jonny Bairstow 29 seeing the Vikings to an emphatic win at Headingley tonight
    5/30/2014 6:44:23 PM
  • Over 19 - Middlesex 105-6 (Malan 41, Roland-Jones 26)
    This partnership moves on to 41 from 32 balls but only five singles are mustered off the wiley Mahmood's penultimate over. Dernbach to finish off proceedings. Middlesex look well short...
    5/30/2014 6:46:07 PM
  • Roland-Jones ct Petersen bld Dernbach 30 [wicket] 

    Roland-Jones falls in the final over attempting to clear the rope. Petersen runs in from long-off and takes a fine catch tumbling forward
