Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match: Stephen Eskinazi
Middlesex skipper Stephen Eskinazi has been consistent on the 22 yard line this season. He has already scored 157 runs in four innings and appears to be in good form. Stephen got off to a good start in the previous game against Sussex, but he couldn’t convert it into a big knock, as he was dismissed for an 18-ball 31. The Middlesex captain will be looking to hit a game-winning knock in the upcoming match.
Probable best bowler of the match: Toby Roland-Jones
Toby Roland-Jones has been a standout for Middlesex with the ball in his hands. He may have given up 40 runs in three overs against Sussex at an economy rate of 13.3, but he also took two wickets. Toby has nine wickets to his name so far and would like to add more to his tally as Middlesex look to return to the top two.
