Match action from the fourth and final day's play at Lord's between Middlesex and Essex. Resuming their second innings on 19-0, needing 451 to win, Essex were saved by the weather as bad light forced an early halt to the day's play, with the visitors in deep trouble on 160 for 8. Needing just two more wickets to secure a victory, Middlesex were left ruing the weather as they had to settle for a draw despite dominating all four day's play.
