Middlesex's Joe Denly and Dawid Malan have been confirmed for the MCC team which will take on Sussex and Warwickshire in Dubai in March, in a competition which also features 2011 County Champions Lancashire.
The Emirates Airline t20 is the first leg of MCC's Champion County trip, the four-day season curtain raiser against last year's winners Warwickshire, played for the fourth consecutive year in Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Stadium, being the main event. Once again the fixture will be a day-night first-class match, using a pink ball - which will be provided by manufacturer Kookaburra.
Dale Benkenstein, the 38-year-old former South Africa batsman, leads an experienced team on the trip, with many of the squad having played in the Champion County fixture in the recent past.
Players confirmed include veteran seamers Steve Kirby and Alan Richardson, who have both represented MCC in the Champion County clash, and Middlesex's Dawid Malan, who played alongside Kirby in 2010.
Simon Kerrigan meanwhile enjoyed considerable success against MCC last year, taking a match-winning 8/96 as Lancashire completed a comfortable six-wicket win. Other names confirmed include Somerset's Peter Trego, Hampshire skipper Jimmy Adams, Sam Northeast of Kent and Malan's county teammate, opener Joe Denly. The remaining squad members will be confirmed shortly.
