Chris Green Middlesex: The uncapped Australian spinner registered his maiden five-wicket haul at St Lawrence Ground last night.
During a South Group match of the ongoing 19th season of the T20 Blast between Kent and Middlesex in Canterbury, Middlesex spinner Chris Green picked maiden five-wicket haul although in a losing cause.
Playing only his second match for Middlesex, Green picked as many as four wicket in the last over of the innings which also included a hat-trick to register bowling figures of 4-0-32-5 after captain Eoin Morgan asked him to share the new ball with Ethan Bamber.
Having dismissed Alex Blake (6) in the seventh over, Green picked his first wicket at the St Lawrence Ground and followed it with dismissing Jordan Cox (64), Jack Leaning (64), Darren Stevens (0) and Matt Milnes (0) in the 20th over.
It is worth mentioning that Leaning, Stevens and Milnes were dismissed on the last three deliveries of the innings.
It was a match-winning 123-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Leaning and Cox which powered Kent to 178/8 after Morgan invited them to bat first.
Failing to seal a run chase for the second night in a row, all Middlesex could manage was 162/8 in 20 overs on the back of all-rounder Luke Hollman scoring 51 (33) down the order. For Kent, Stevens once again emerged as the pick of their bowlers with bowling figures of 4-0-32-3.
Having won their second match in a row, Kent are currently at the second position on the points table. Middlesex, on the other hand, are reeling at the bottom with a net run rate of -1.750.
