Cricket: Blackcaps all-rounder Daryl Mitchell impresses with bat and ball for English side Middlesex in T20 Blast

Blackcaps all-rounder Daryl Mitchell shone with bat and ball for English county side Middlesex, helping them to a seven-wicket victory in England's domestic T20 Blast tournament.

Losing the toss and bowling first against Glamorgan at Radlett, Mitchell finished as the pick of the Middlesex attack - taking 3/37 from his four overs.

After having Glamorgan in trouble at 76/6, Mitchell's Middlesex let their opponents off the hook through a partnership of 88 runs between James Weighell (51) and Dan Douthwaite (53).

And even though Mitchell removed both batsmen, Middlesex was handed a formidable chase with a target of 171 for victory.

But a quickfire 32 from 13 balls - with three sixes and two fours - to Mitchell along with an unbeaten 91 from 56 balls to Stevie Eskinazi saw Middlesex canter home with seven wickets and 14 balls to spare.

Mitchell was one of five Blackcaps omitted from the squad that faced India in the World Test Championship final but has stayed in the UK to compete in the T20 Blast as an overseas player.

The win lifts Middlesex off the bottom of the table in the T20 Blast's South Group, sitting ahead of Colin de Grandhomme's Hampshire on net run rate. The Blackcaps all-rounder's latest heroics come after a 36-ball 58 in Middlesex's London derby defeat to Kyle Jamieson's Surrey on Saturday (NZ time).

Elsewhere, Jamieson's Surrey had to settle for shared points in their clash against Sussex, which was rained off one ball short of the minimum five overs needed to constitute a completed match.

Surrey is third in the South Group, with 11 points from their first nine games.

Spinner Ish Sodhi also impressed with the ball for Worcestershire, taking 1/16 from three overs in their seven-wicket victory against Leicestershire.

Worcestershire is fourth in the North Group, with 10 points from nine games.
