Ravi Patel released by Middlesex Cricket
Middlesex Cricket can today announce that Ravi Patel’s contract has not been renewed by the club and he will leave Middlesex at the end of the 2018 season.
Left-arm orthodox spinner Patel, 27, leaves the club after a nine-year spell, in which he made 22 First-Class, 24 List-A and 37 Twenty20 appearances, taking a total of 139 wickets in all formats of the game.
As a Middlesex cricketer Patel was called up to represent the England Lions in 2014 – making two appearances, against Sri Lanka-A and New Zealand-A, plus he also made three appearances for the South, in the second North vs South Series held in Barbados earlier this year.
Speaking of Ravi Patel’s departure from the club, Angus Fraser, Middlesex Cricket’s Managing Director of Cricket commented:
“Ravi’s appearances in and around the First Eleven have continued to be occasional and we believe he has reached a stage in his career where he needs new and fresh challenges in a different environment.
“Ravi remains keen to continue to play professional cricket and we wish him well in his search to do this.
“He is an extremely capable bowler and it is a shame that all of us have been unable to consistently get the best out of him.”
