Electing to take the toss at the Emirates Riverside, Middlesex skipper Adam Voges duly won it and opted to have a bat, as Middlesex prospered on day one. Half centuries from Nick Gubbins, Dawid Malan and Voges himself saw the visitors reach 358 for 7 at the close, with only a late couple of wickets for Durham swinging the day's play back to honours even on the opening day.

 

After top scoring on the first day at Durham, Dawid Malan reflects on a productive start to the match for Middlesex.
