Scorecard
Dawid Malan finished on 84 not out as Middlesex duly wrapped up their fourth victory of the season beating Division Two leaders Glamorgan by six wickets on the final morning at Cardiff. It took the batsmen, Malan and Gareth Berg, only 10.4 overs and 38 minutes to knock off the 50 runs they required for victory.
That was after Middlesex had ended the third day in a dominant position at 200 for 4. Middlesex took 19 points from the contest to Glamorgan's three, with the Welsh county set to lose top spot to Sussex.
But with three games remaining Glamorgan are still 17 points ahead of third-placed Gloucestershire in the promotion race. Glamorgan opened with spin from both ends at the start of the final day but it proved ineffectual as the fifth-wicket pair added 34 from the first seven overs.
Malan, 52 overnight, pulled Dean Cosker for four and in the next over Berg cover drove Robert Croft to the boundary. Stand-in skipper Mark Wallace turned to seam after the first seven overs, but when he decided to take the second new ball Middlesex only required 10 more to win.
Victory arrived with Malan driving David Harrison over cover for four. Glamorgan will now have to regroup before they play Sussex at Hove next week, a match that will almost certainly see them without their captain Jamie Dalrymple, who broke his right thumb when he was hit by seamer Pedro Collins while batting during the first innings.
