Warren achieves century double
County Championship D1, Lord's, day four: Nottinghamshire 361 & 407-5 dec drew with Middlesex 326 Nottinghamshire 11 pts, Middlesex 10

Russell Warren and Jason Gallian helped themselves to hundreds as the game petered out to a predictable draw.

It meant that Middlesex finished their Championship campaign with 10 of their 16 fixtures having ended without a positive result for either side.

Warren followed his first innings 123 with an unbeaten 113 to become the first batsman to make two centuries in one game at Lord's, while Notts skipper Gallian found the boundary 11 times in his 116 before being caught off Ed Joyce.

It would have required something remarkable for either side to force a win following rain on the second day and once it became obvious Notts were not going to collapse, Middlesex turned to their part-time bowlers.

Sorry Nashy, no more room
Message on Lord's scoreboard

Skipper Andy Strauss gave 10 different players a chance to turn their arms over, including wicket-keeper David Nash - which caused a problem on the scoreboard which only had room for nine.

Kevin Petersen provided some entertainment by hitting 68 off 57 balls before becoming Strauss' maiden first-class victim.

Not to be outdone, fellow opening batsman Sven Koenig had Paul McMahon caught behind for 30 to register the second wicket of his career before an over from slow left-arm from right-arm seamer Chad Keegan prompted the two captains to shake hands.

Middlesex: A Strauss (capt.), S Koenig, B Hutton, O Shah, E Joyce, P Weekes, D Nash (wkt), J Dalrymple, T Bloomfield, C Keegan, J Dawes.

Nottinghamshire: J Gallian (capt), D Bicknell, R Warren, K Pietersen, B Shafayat, C Cairns, C Read (wkt), P Franks, P McMahon, S MacGill, C Shreck.
