Fall of wickets: 1-29 (Zak Crawley, 8.4 ov), 2-44 (Daniel Bell-Drummond, 17.6 ov), 3-47 (Jack Leaning, 20.3 ov), 4-48 (Jordan Cox, 21.3 ov), 5-69 (Sam Billings, 32.5 ov), 6-92 (Joey Evison, 43.1 ov), 7-145 (Ben Compton, 55.3 ov), 8-166 (Matt Quinn, 62.2 ov), 9-180 (Wes Agar, 64.2 ov), 10-186 (Grant Stewart, 65.2 ov)
8.4 to Z Crawley, Through the gate! Murtagh gets on on about off stump that pitches and nips in, clipping the top of middle stump. Crawley's expansive drive found nothing but air. 29/1
32.5 to SW Billings, . 69/5
62.2 to MR Quinn, . 166/8
64.2 to WA Agar, . 180/9
17.6 to DJ Bell-Drummond, Gone! Good work from Bamber, keeping things tight against Bell-Drummond before offering the merest hint of width. The right-hander goes after it but can only edge high to Eskinazi's right, well taken by the stand-in skipper. 44/2
21.3 to JM Cox, A cartwheeling stump! With all due respect to Bamber, he is not known for taking out timber, but he's done just that here, profiting from a very bad leave from Jordan Cox. That's now 3 wickets lost for just 4 runs.... 48/4
43.1 to JDM Evison, . 92/6
55.3 to BG Compton, . 145/7
20.3 to JA Leaning, Higgins strikes! Just three balls in and the allrounder has drawn an edge: Leaning going hard outside off stump and nicking low to Robson at 2nd slip. Two wickets lost for three runs.... 47/3
65.2 to G Stewart, . 186/10

Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Mark Stoneman, 2.1 ov), 2-37 (Pieter Malan, 9.1 ov), 3-47 (Sam Robson, 10.2 ov), 4-62 (Max Holden, 15.4 ov), 5-62 (Stephen Eskinazi, 16.1 ov), 6-90 (John Simpson, 27.4 ov), 7-165 (Luke Hollman, 48.4 ov), 8-206 (Tom Helm, 53.5 ov), 9-216 (Ryan Higgins, 54.4 ov), 10-229 (Tim Murtagh, 58.1 ov)
2.1 to MD Stoneman, Quick out the blocks... now back in the pavilion. Stoneman brisk start comes to an end, neither forward nor back, throwing his hands at a delivery and skewing it head height to Crawley at second slip, who parries the ball over the bar and into the hands of Cox at first. 22/1
10.2 to SD Robson, Good catch! Agar gets one to seam just enough up the slope to find an edge, brilliantly taken by second slip diving to his right. 47/3
54.4 to RF Higgins, . 216/9
58.1 to TJ Murtagh, . 229/10
27.4 to JA Simpson, Breakthrough! Middlesex's longest stand so far - 10.3 overs, for 28 runs - comes to an end, as Simpson is beaten by a fine delivery from Hogan from over the wicket, which pitches on leg and seams away from the left-hander, taken an edge along the way. 90/6
53.5 to TG Helm, . 206/8
9.1 to PJ Malan, Gone! Seven balls after the interval, Malan skims a half-volley outside leg stump through to Billings. Should have gone for four, really, but Malan falls to the offside and can't connect adequately enough. 37/2
15.4 to MDE Holden, Another! Another tame dismissal from Holden, who presses forward and offers his bat for an edge duly found by Stewart. A slightly open face towards the covers means Billings has a view all the way, adjusting well as the ball just dips to shin height as it reaches him. 62/4
16.1 to SS Eskinazi, Sorry to say it's another Middlesex collapse... Stand-in captain Eskinazi feathers an edge through to Billings off Quinn's first delivery of the match. That's now 4 wickets lost for 25 runs.... 62/5
48.4 to LBK Hollman, . 165/7

47.5 to SW Billings, Another! A five-ball duck for the Kent skipper, as Murtagh nips one into the right-hander. Keeps a bit low and Billings doesn't need to wait for the umpire's signal. Kent lead by 56, and that's lunch. 99/5

37.5 to JA Leaning, Big one for Middlesex! Good delivery from Higgins, pitching on off and getting enough movement away from Leaning to take the edge through to Robson at second slip. 87/3
