Event of the day

Our event of the day...

is the T20 Blast match between Middlesex and Gloucestershire at the Uxbridge Cricket Club Ground. Both teams have two more games before the playoffs and have a lot of work to do if they are to make the Quarter-finals. Currently in the South Division, Glamorgan lie in first position with 16 points and Hampshire in second with 15 points and both are looking good for the playoffs. Essex and Somerset currently hold the last two qualification places but much can change in this last week of the group stages.

Middlesex and Gloucestershire met in July at the College Ground, Cheltenham and took part in a thrilling tie where Gloucestershire's Benny Howell took a wicket off the last bowl which resulted in both teams finishing on 182 runs. It is all set up for an exciting Twenty20 match in Uxbridge.

Honourable mentions...

around the globe go to day two of the Cincinnati Open with Spaniard David Ferrer up against American Steve Johnson in the men’s singles and in the women’s singles Venus Williams battles fellow American Alison Riske. In MLB there is a full set of fifteen matches, with the Boston Red Sox battle with the St. Louis Cardinals at Fenway Park in Boston the pick of the games.

Whatever you’re watching, enjoy!
