Middlesex are well below 3 an over against Surrey. The bowling’s been reasonably good – tight, but not very penetrative. Singh is on for his first over, and Smith’s crashed him off the back foot. Impressed with Murtagh, looks to have a good action and caused lots of problems for both the left and right-handers. Certainly the pick of the pack so far. Lord’s really looks a sight today, with the sun beating down on a carpet-like outfield. Ooh, 4 for Smith through 1st and 2nd slip. He really doesn’t look half the player of a season or 2 ago.
