Match Notes

  • Rogers lifts Middlesex from the brink

    If Middlesex do avoid relegation - and they really should now - they will owe it largely to Chris Rogers

  • Morgan and Rogers provide lifeline

    Eoin Morgan demonstrated the technique and temperament that could yet render him a fine Test batsman and with it boosted Middlesex's hopes of avoiding relegation

  • Wretched Middlesex slip nearer drop

    A match that started with Middlesex facing the outside possibility of relegation looks likely to end with them staring it in the face. It is entirely possible they will leave Taunton with only one point

  • Kieswetter puts career fears behind him

    Craig Kieswetter marked his return to the Somerset side after a potentially career-threatening eye injury with a fluent half-century as Middlesex's survival hopes took a hit
