Middlesex County Cricket Club have got off to a great start in the LV= County Championship with two wins from two matches. The club will be playing a four-day LV=CC London Derby match against close rivals Surrey County Cricket Club at Lord’s Cricket Ground, starting tomorrow Thursday 2 May.
Middlesex CCC are pleased to announce the following 12-man squad to play in the match:
Chris Rogers (captain)
Managing Director of Cricket Angus Fraser commented "Gareth Berg’s shoulder is still not 100% right, so whilst we have seam bowling resources available to us, we’ve decided to give him an extra week’s rest as his workload for the remainder of May is expected to be heavy.
"Ollie Rayner has also been omitted from the side as spin has not traditionally played a prominent role in early season matches at Lord’s and the batting potential of a player has been placed ahead of the bowling, hence Adam London and Paul Stirling have been included in the squad.
"It goes without saying that this is a big game for Middlesex – matches against Surrey always are. Our focus will be on playing a similar brand of cricket to what we have already produced this season."
As previously announced yesterday, James Harris is also being rested for this match. To read an update on his hamstring injury please CLICK HERE.
Gates open at 10am and the Match starts at 11am on all four days of this game.
Entry: Middlesex Members FREE, Adults £16, Over 65s £8, Under 16s £5 (4th day: £5 for adults, Free for O65s & U16s)
Tickets can be bought on the gate on the day.
