Jacques Rudolph clips the ball away during his unbeaten innings of 86 yesterday at Lord's which guided Yorkshire to an eight-wicket victory over Middlesex in the Clydesdale Bank 40.

The South African is in fine form having struck a century against Essex in the Championship last week and helped the Tykes to chase down 183 for 9. That Middlesex managed that owed much to the efforts of another South African, Gareth Berg, who hit 40, and the 22-year-old Tom Scollay, who struck 32. Rudolph received fine support from Andrew Gale (39) and Adam Lyth (34). The win keeps Yorkshire top of Group B.
