The round two of the Virtual County Championship between Glamorgan and Middlesex is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Glamorgan were initially not supposed to rope in South Africa-born Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne last year but a few last minute moves led to the procurement. The team was certainly not disappointed as Labuschagne set the the Championship on fire with 1114 runs from 10 games at an average of over 65, scoring five centuries and five half-centuries. He carried his form in the Ashes as well, which Glamorgan might not have enjoyed that much but they will be relieved that they have the Australian gun batsman this year as well.

Michael Hogan was the team's most successful bowler last year with 46 wickets from 11 matches at an average of 21.17 and will be the leader of their bowling pack.

In Sam Robson, Peter Handscomb and Eoin Morgan, Middlesex have batsmen who should prevent their ride from division 2 to division 1 from being bumpy. Robson had a fine season in 2019 with 858 runs.

With the ball, Steven Finn and Tim Murtagh are their lead pacers - though nearing the end of their careers - who are still going quite strong. Toby Roland-Jones, who picked up 33 wickets last season, will also be at the team's service.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Middlesex - Sam Robson, Nick Gubbins, Stephen Eskinazi, Peter Handscomb, Max Holden, Eoin Morgan, John Simpson, James Harris, Toby Roland-Jones, Steven Finn, Tim Murtagh

Glamorgan- Nick Selman, Charlie Humphrey, Marnus Labuschagne, David Lloyd, Billy Root, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke, Graham Wagg, Marchant de Lange, Timm Van der Gugten, Michael Hogan
