Cricket: Warwickshire Seamers Give Best Effort of Rising Season; LV COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP UXBRIDGE (Third Day): Middlesex 170 and 20-0 V Warwickshire 393


Byline: By George Dobell Chief Cricket Writer

The weather may deny them but Warwickshire can leave Uxbridge today feeling well satis Sed with their continued improvement in form.

Rain and bad light have already taken 84 overs from this match and the forecast for today is not encouraging. But, in following a determined display of batting with a skilled display of bowling, Warwickshire have produced arguably their best championship performance for several years and fully deserve to clinch victory today.

Certainly it is hard to recall a better performance from their bowling unit. In dismissing Middlesex for their lowest total of the season, Warwickshire's seamers produced an intelligent, skilful and disciplined display and, for the second time in three matches, forced the opposition to follow on.

It had appeared that Warwickshire were set for an attritional day's cricket. Owais Shah was in determined mood and Eoin Morgan looked in good touch as he drove neatly down the ground.

So when Jonathan Trott dropped Shah, on 25, prodding at a Chris Martin delivery, it appeared that a golden opportunity had been spurned. Warwickshire did not allow their spirits to drop, however, as might have happened last season, and maintained their aggression admirably.

Neil Carter, who is now the subject of a formal approach from Gloucestershire as well as Glamorgan, was especially impressive. …
