On the other hand, Middlesex are in the lower rung with only one win from six games. They have lost two matches, while drawing three and are with 52 points.

Marnus Labuschagne is the highest run-scorer for Glamorgan and is also at the top of the overall run tally of County Championship Division Two. He is with 653 runs from six matches at an average of over 65 and has slammed three centuries and one half-century.

Billy Root is at the second spot with 517 runs from six matches at an average of almost 60, with two centuries and one half-century. Bowling has been a bit of a let down for Glamorgan. Only Marchant de Lange has been a ray of hope for the team and has picked up 16 wickets from seven matches, at an average of around 30.

Tom Lace and David Malan have been among the runs for Middlesex, both scoring in excess of 400. Nick Gubbins has also been decent for the team and has accumulated 347 runs from 10 innings.
