On a day when England’s one-day players were frustrated by the rain that forced an abandonment of their international against West Indies at Trent Bridge Cliff Pennington Authentic Jersey winter.With 38 required and Lancashire nine down, Haseeb Hameed, a finger on his right hand fractured, strode through the Lord’s pavilion to join an old classmate at Bolton school, Matt Parkinson, in the middle. Hameed’s brave effort was in vain; he survived nine balls before Parkinson, a true tail-ender, edged to first slip to become the irresistible Steven Finn’s eighth wicket. Middlesex had won a wonderful game by 36 runs and put their survival hopes, going into the trip to their fellow strugglers Somerset next week, in their own hands.Hameed had picked up the injury when struck by James Harris with Lancashire four down, after an early burst from Finn, in pursuit of 221. After extensive inspection, he retired hurt and had an x-ray. He has form for returning to the fray with busted digits and the sense is that this, given his low-handed technique, will not be the last busted digit he endures. This one, though, is badly timed and surely ends his faint hopes of Ashes selection, as well as his season.Hameed was not the only England concern thrown up by this game; the selectors, days before announcing their squad for Australia, will be keeping a keen eye on the CT scan Toby Roland-Jones undergoes on his back on Friday. After pulling up on Garrett Richards Youth Jersey Tuesday evening, an initial scan showed no major damage and Roland-Jones was well enough to bat in Middlesex’s second innings. He, like Ollie Rayner, who has a side injury, is very unlikely to play at Taunton on Monday.Finn’s display was deeply encouraging, though. He began the day by bowling Liam Livingstone with one that nipped back handsomely (although Livingstone, another with Ashes aspirations, will regret his loose drive), then Adidas Mets Jersey pinning Adidas Mets Authentic Jersey Steven Angels Jersey Croft Angels Authentic Jersey in front with one that stayed very low. The pitch, troublesome throughout, behaved better on the final day once the ball had softened. When Tim Murtagh trapped Shivnarine Chanderpaul lbw, Lancashire had lost three for 14 on the day, and their hopes rested with Hameed.
After Harris did for Hameed (the first time, at least), Dane Vilas chose to counterpunch, before gloving Finn behind shortly before lunch, hooking. His fifth was Jordan Clark, swinging outside off and caught behind. This, remarkably, was Finn’s first first-class five-wicket haul since the Edgbaston Ashes Test of 2015, and his first in the championship since April 2014. He has only once recorded better figures, his breakthrough nine for 37 against Worcestershire in 2010, and his captain, Adam Voges, did not shirk the opportunity to promote Finn’s Ashes chances.“He’s David Wright Youth Jersey bowled as well as I’ve ever seen him bowl,” Voges said. “A bowler down [with Roland-Jones’s injury] became two bowlers down with Ollie and his dodgy side, so to stand up the way he did, well assisted by Murtagh and Harris, was superb. He had rhythm, his pace was up and his areas were good. He wanted to bowl every over, he didn’t want it taken out of his hands, which is a good sign. If he bowls like that he should 100% should go to Australia.”
With just the tail to get through, Voges and Rayner – who the captain said was “at times having trouble breathing”, so bad was his intercostal injury – played vital roles with their superb slip catching. After Harris trapped Tom
Bailey with a questionable lbw, Voges took a fine flying catch at first slip to give Finn his sixth and dismiss Kyle Jarvis, who looks increasingly likely to return to Zimbabwe at the end of the season.Finn took a rest and Dawid Malan bowled some leg-breaks, then Rayner’s catch was even better to dismiss Ryan McLaren – another unlikely to return in 2018, despite a superb contribution this season. McLaren looked to ramp over the cordon but Rayner, a vast presence at second slip, dived left and stuck his right hand up to pluck Gary Carter Womens Jersey a brilliant catch, and back came Hameed. Parkinson’s low edge was taken by Voges and, after deliberation from the umpires, Finn had eight for 79.“I’ve played for this club for a long time and I’m very proud to represent it, and will be into the future. It was about time I did something for the boys,” Finn said, of covering for the absence of the leader of the attack, Roland-Jones.
