Scorecard

Middlesex beat Derbyshire by 117 runs despite an unbeaten century from former opener Billy Godleman for the visitors.

Godleman (105 not out) brought up his ton with a six off Tim Murtagh but lacked support in Derbyshire’s chase of 328 after Middlesex declared on 199-7.

Rain delayed the resumption of play after lunch with Derbyshire on 108-3, but Murtagh (4-55) and Ethan Bamber (3-35) made regular breakthroughs.

Derbyshire were eventually all out for 210 with Godleman carrying his bat.
