Middlesex win County Championship for first time since 1980
Middlesex won the AC Inter County Championship for the first time since 1980 and the 27th all time. Berkshire won the second division.
Due to the pandemic only 16 of the usual 22 counties competed, so the event was run as two divisions of eight teams with no promotion or relegation. Teams were also reduced from the usual six players to four and so each match consisted of two singles and a doubles.
The first division ended in a four-way tie on five match wins between Middlesex, Surrey, Hertfordshire and Essex. Essex won one game fewer than the others and since Middlesex beat both Surrey and Hertfordshire they were deemed the winners.
In the second division Berkshire and Dorset both had five match wins, but Berkshire were deemed winners by winning 14 games compared with Dorset's 13.
* Middlesex beat Surrey and Hertfordshire, and Surrey beat Hertford
