©cricket World / John Mallett

Round 10 of the Virtual County Championship between Middlesex and Glamorgan 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.

Middlesex are placed at the 4th spot in the Virtual County Championship Divison 2 points table with 4 wins and 4 losses. The team has 108 points from 9 matches.

They will be up against Glamorgan who are placed at the 2nd spot in the leaderboard. Glamorgan have 5 wins and 3 losses. The team has added 114 points from 8 games.

Glamorgan registered a massive 279-run victory in their round 9 match against Durham. The team posted 343 runs on the board on the back of half-centuries from Michael Hogan and Tim Van der Gugten.

When Marchant de Lange claimed 6/56 in Durham's first batting innings to bowl them out for 155, Glamorgan were always winning the game. Half-centuries from Andrew Salter and Billy Root and 7/45 from Michael Hogan made the margin of victory only bigger.

When Middlesex declared for 317/8 in their first innings against Leicestershire in their round 9 match, courtesy of 101 from Eoin Morgan and 76 from Tom Lace, they were heading towards a victory.

Things were further tilted in their favour when James Harris took 3/26 in Leicestershire's batting innings to give Middlesex a 99-run lead. Tim Murtagh's 6/88 then set Middlesex a very chaseable target which Sam Robson and Stephen Eskinazi achieved without any hiccups.

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

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

Glamorgan- Nick Selman, Charlie Humphrey, David Lloyd, Billy Root, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke, Craig Meschede, Andrew Salter, Marchant de Lange, Timm Van der Gugten, Michael Hogan
