County Championship: Middlesex crush Surrey in London derby as visitors suffer big collapse at Lord’s

Middlesex romped to their first victory of the LV=County Championship season by thrashing winless London rivals Surrey by 10 wickets inside three days at Lord’s as the visitors suffered a huge collapse.

Surrey lost their final seven wickets for just 25 runs, slumping from 105-3 to 130 all out once England batsman Rory Burns (54) was caught behind off Ethan Bamber (3-30) from the first ball of the day.

Toby Roland-Jones took 4-29 and former Surrey seamer Tim Murtagh claimed 2-30 as the away side’s capitulation left Middlesex requiring just 17.

Sam Robson – who scored a first-innings 95 – and Max Holden hit seven not out and 11 not out respectively as the hosts reached their tiny target in 2.3 overs to bounce back from defeats to Somerset and Hampshire in their first two games in Group 2.
