Rain frustrates Middlesex title hopes

Glamorgan v Middlesex

Middlesex's pursuit of the County Championship Division Two title was put on hold as no play was possible on the opening day of their clash with Glamorgan at Cardiff.

From their last two games of the season Middlesex need a further 22 points to go up to Division One as champions. However, it proved a frustrating day of persistent showers for the visitors.

The umpires - Neil Mallender and Paul Baldwin - had an inspection after lunch but further rain forced the officials to call it off for the day at 2.50pm.
