Middlesex chase down 406 to win
County Championship D1, Southgate (day four): Middlesex 435-4d & 406-3 beat Glamorgan 584-3d & 256-3d

Middlesex produced an astonishing run chase to consign Glamorgan to their seventh Championship defeat.

Glamorgan declared their second innings on 256-3, leaving Middlesex to hit a highly improbable 406 from 80 overs.

But with Ed Smith and Owais Shah hitting centuries, and Ed Joyce adding a rapid unbeaten 70, Middlesex somehow got home with 13 balls to spare.

The Southgate wicket yielded nearly 1,700 runs in all, with just 14 wickets falling throughout the four days.

Smith hit 20 boundaries in his 145, which occupied just 171 deliveries. Shah smashed four sixes and 12 fours in his 155, which came off 202 balls.

But the quickest scorer was the brilliant Joyce, who came in at number four and became the first man in the country to pass 1,000 runs for the season.
