Middlesex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Chris Rogers has signed a new two-year contract with the club. The deal means that Rogers will be with Middlesex until at least the end of the 2014 English Domestic Cricket Season.
Rogers, 35, has been Middlesex CCC’s overseas player for the past two seasons and during this period has scored more than 3,000 runs for the club in all types of cricket. In first-class cricket he has scored 2,324 runs at an average of 45.6, which, on pitches that have been seamer friendly, is outstanding. Rogers, who has captained the LV=CC side for nearly all the season, will not play T20 cricket for Middlesex in 2013 and 2014 but will be available for the County Championship and CB40.
Commenting on Rogers' signing Middlesex County Cricket Club’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said: “Chris has played a huge part in the progress Middlesex has made in the past couple of seasons and we want him to be a central figure in what we are attempting to achieve moving forward. He is the perfect overseas player in that he is a class batsman who provides the club with runs, experience and nous, and he is available all season. He has also captained the LV=CC side extremely well since taking over from Neil Dexter early in the season and we are delighted he will be at Lord’s for the next two seasons.”
