Middlesex CCC travel to Warwickshire hoping to repeat the sort of performance the club produced at Edgbaston last season. Although Middlesex only drew with the County Champions in 2012 it was a very strong display.
There are a few changes to the squad although the big plus for Middlesex is Steven Finn being permitted to play in the game. Finn’s schedule was to be reviewed by the England selectors at the end of our fixture against Surrey and it has been decided that he will play at Edgbaston prior to next week’s Test against New Zealand.
Toby Roland-Jones is away with the England Lions at Leicester, and everyone at Middlesex wishes him well against New Zealand. Gareth Berg, who produced a good all-round display in the Yorkshire Bank 40 match against Glamorgan, is welcomed back, as is Ollie Rayner. Tom Helm travels as fast bowling cover. The return of Berg, means that emphasis for the fifth bowler is placed on their capacity to bowl spin rather than bat. This has resulted in Paul Stirling being omitted. Stirling will get many more chances.
Middlesex are pleased to announce the following 12-man squad:
Chris Rogers (captain)
