Close of Play

  • Mon, 11 May - day 2 - Middlesex 2nd innings 126/6 (JA Simpson 0*, OP Rayner 19*, 34 ov)
  • Tue, 12 May - day 3 - Sussex 2nd innings 207 (52.5 ov) - end of match

Match Notes

  • Middlesex become shock leaders

    Middlesex, unfancied as Championship contenders after their poor finish to last season, cemented top spot in the First Division by beating Sussex by 79 runs at Hove to claim their third successive win

  • Advantage Middlesex as wickets tumble

    Division One leaders Middlesex are well placed to claim their third successive win after another bowler-dominated day at Hove

  • Shahzad injury is a worry for Sussex

    An injury to Ajmal Shahzad put a dampener on Sussex's opening day against Middlesex after they dismissed the LV= County Championship leaders relatively cheaply at Hove
