This week’s LV= County Championship match between Middlesex and Gloucestershire will be shown live on Sky Sports from Thursday.

The four-day game at Lord’s sees leaders Gloucestershire aiming to extend their lead at the top of Group 2 as they take on fifth-placed Middlesex, who have won just one of their four games this season, losing the other three.

Sky Sports will assist and add to the regular Middlesex CCC stream coverage with Mike Atherton, Nasser Hussain, Rob Key and Ian Ward joining Adam Collins and Matt Floyd to provide commentary and expert analysis.


“The Championship has been terrific,” Atherton told Sky Sports. “These days, with the wonders of modern technology, all the counties stream their games so anybody has been able to watch a county stream.

“We’re going to be taking one of those streams – Middlesex’s home stream against Gloucestershire at Lord’s. We’re in a new kind of conference system this year which leads into a divisional system in September.

“We’ve seen lots of interesting games, lots of great cricket, some good storylines as well with players coming back into form like young Haseeb Hameed at Nottinghamshire. There’s lots going on and the streams have been terrific so fingers crossed for dry weather over the four days from Thursday!

“Gloucestershire are going great guns, they’re leading Group 2, Middlesex not so well but hopefully we’ll get a good game.”
