Stirling inspires Middlesex to easy win

Middlesex cruised to 10 wicket victory over Leicestershire at Grace Road thanks to an unbeaten 132 from Paul Stirling in the Yorkshire Bank 40.

Stirling shared an unbroken opening stand of 221 with Dawid Malan (80 not out) to see the Panthers secure their second win on the trot in the competition and end the home side's 100% record in this year's tournament.

Leicestershire were bowled out for 220 as Neil Dexter's bowlers shared the wickets evenly; James Harris, Toby Roland-Jones, Tim Murtagh, Gareth Berg and Olly Rayner all picking up two apiece.

Dexter then had the pleasure of watching his openers break the record for Middlesex's highest opening partnership in limited overs cricket as Stirling - who was dropped before scoring - and Malan knocked the total of with 9.4 overs to spare.
