Match Notes

  • Rogers produces Lord's miracle

    Chris Rogers, with a chanceless and unbeaten double-century, led his Middlesex side to victory with the third highest successful fourth-innings run chase in the history of the County Championship

  • Ballance sends powerful message

    Gary Ballance's century for Yorkshire set Middlesex an improbable target at Lord's, but an excellent opening stand between Chris Rogers and Sam Robson has sustained their hopes

  • Yorkshire show virtues of taking Root

    Solid second innings batting by Yorkshire, led by Joe Root and Adam Lyth, has put the visitors in a very strong position at Lord's

  • Root's return burdened by captaincy

    Joe Root, making his first-class return after sustaining a broken thumb in Antigua, found himself promoted to the captaincy against Middlesex
