Lowe's a highlight for seconds

Trialist Andrew Lowe impressed with the bat but couldn't prevent Northamptonshire losing to Middlesex twice in the Second XI Twenty20 competition at Uxbridge on Friday.

Lowe, from Sydney but with a British passport, is playing at Richmond CC this summer under the Adam Gilchrist sponsorship scheme.  

He hit 50 off 42 balls in the first of two matches - but the County could only manage 122-6 in their 20 overs, and Middlesex coasted home by nine wickets with 6.2 overs to spare.

The second match was much closer, though.

Replying to the home side's 177-3, Northamptonshire fell just short on 170-4 - thanks to Lowe's excellent knock of 82 from 60 deliveries with two sixes and ten fours.
