Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Mark Stoneman, 6.4 ov), 2-22 (Sam Robson, 9.1 ov), 3-36 (Jack Davies, 16.1 ov), 4-49 (Ryan Higgins, 17.5 ov), 5-55 (John Simpson, 21.4 ov), 6-91 (Joe Cracknell, 32.6 ov), 7-98 (Jayant Yadav, 35.2 ov), 8-100 (Tom Helm, 37.1 ov), 9-100 (Ethan Bamber, 37.6 ov), 10-121 (Joshua De Caires, 39.5 ov)
6.4 to MD Stoneman, presses forward once again, round the wicket, straightening off the pitch, and this time there's no doubt! Snicked through to Burgess and the first wicket falls. 20/1
32.6 to JB Cracknell, full and straight, nipping a fraction and pinning a pad that hasn't got far enough forward. That one's smacking leg stump, and Middlesex are six-down!. 91/6
9.1 to SD Robson, tight line, nips back, nobbles the knee-roll, up goes the finger! Hannon-Dalby has been relentless in the channel this morning, and this time he gets his reward. 22/2
35.2 to J Yadav, just a little bit of nip back up the slope, a loose angled bat on the drive, and a fat inside-edge into his own stumps. This innings is heading south. 98/7
37.1 to TG Helm, full, straight, out! Attacking full length, a threat of movement, nailed on the pads, that's splattering the stumps again. 100/8
37.6 to ER Bamber, tight line, nip off the seam once more, Bamber threatens to play off the back foot, shoulders arms instead, and gets his off stump knocked back. Whoops. 100/9
39.5 to JM De Caires, clipped low to midwicket. De Caires' spirited resistance is unpicked, and Middlesex's unwhelming innings is done. 121/10
16.1 to JLB Davies, round the wicket, off pole plucked out of the ground! Oh dear, simple pickings for Miles, hitting a good line and length at a decent pace, and Davies just plays down the wrong line. 36/3
17.5 to RF Higgins, another one departs! Out comes off stump once more, nips from a full length to beat the outside edge, Higgins crouches aghast as Barnard gut-punches the air. 49/4
21.4 to JA Simpson, back of a length outside off, Simpson wafts into a flimsy cramped cut and feathers an edge through to Burgess. Five down.... 55/5

0.2 to RM Yates, a tempting outswinger, pushed across the left-hander, a flat-footed cut and under-edged into the stumps! Murtagh strikes second ball in his final match at Lord's!. 0/1
6.4 to KC Brathwaite, stunning grab by Simpson! Straightens on an off-stump line, a low snick is falling short of the cordon, but the keeper flings out his right glove and scoops up the offering. Murtagh has two! Give him a new contract!. 13/2
8.5 to AL Davies, loopy length ball, tight to off stump, nipping into the pads, Davies plants the front foot, gets pinned plumb in front, and Murtagh has three! The batter twiddles his bat in frustration but that was dead-eyed seam bowling. 25/3
30.1 to EG Barnard, . 87/5
32.3 to MGK Burgess, . 95/6
86.3 to CN Miles, skips down the pitch, has a big hack across the line and Murtagh splatters his stumps! An ugly end to a fine innings. 296/8
14.2 to DR Mousley, . 43/4
70.1 to WMH Rhodes, slashed into the gully, and Rhodes' excellent innings is done. Full length, a tempting outswinger, got a fat edge through the ball and straight into Robson's hands. 238/7
87.3 to DR Briggs, attempts to work the ball to leg, but it's a horrible swirling top-edge! Briggs knows he's toast from the moment the ball goes skywards, as he jogs to the far end on the off-chance it'll be his 100th run... instead Simpson runs round with the gloves and he's gone for 99!. 298/9
89.4 to OJ Hannon-Dalby, another top-edge, and there's the end of the innings! Back of a length from round the wicket, Hannon-Dalby gets in a fankle on the back foot and flaps the ball skywards for Cracknell to pouch in the covers. A tasty lead of 194 with which to turn the screw. 315/10

23.1 to MD Stoneman, A long delay for some repairs on the bowler's run-ups, and first ball back, Miles comes round the wicket to Stoneman, finds some extra pop from a good length, and snicks the inside-edge through to the keeper!. 78/1

2.4 to AL Davies, smashed on the knee roll reverse-sweeping, and up goes the finger! First-class wicket number 958 for the departing Murtagh, his seventh of the match. 13/1
4.5 to DR Mousley, lightning-fast hands from Simpson! Mousley flashes hard at a ball that is angled across him and Simpson whips the bails off... his back foot had dragged out of his crease, and the square leg umpire reckons it wasn't back down in time. 27/2
