Match One Result – Middlesex win by 6 wickets


Middlesex decided to put the visiting Hampshire side into bat first at Old Deer Park in Richmond, and were rewarded by taking two early wickets, thanks to Blake Cullen.

However, once Ervine reached the crease, he pushed Hampshire forward in an aggressive manor- despite wickets continuing to fall around him.

Ervine managed to remain unbeaten throughout the innings, and managed to pass his century, before eventually reaching 115 not out by the close.

Hampshire, largely due to Ervine’s masterful display, managed to reach 176-6 from their 20 overs.

Middlesex openers Tom Lace and Joe Cracknell set the pace superbly for the hosts. The pair were able to put on an opening partnership of 89 before Cracknell went for 55.

Tom Lace continued on before eventually going for 43, and Stephen Eskinazi also put Hampshire bowlers to the sword- adding 47 himself.

These contributions meant that victory was within sight, with Sowter & Scott getting Middlesex over the line with 2 balls to spare.

Middlesex also lost early wickets in response, and with the score at 19-2 in the 3rd over, Hampshire had their tails up.
