Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that wicket-keeper batsman Amara Carr will represent the club in both formats of the county game from 2020 onwards.
Plymouth born Carr, 25, has represented her home county of Devon in both competitive formats since making her senior county debut as a 14 year old in May 2008, although in 2017, whilst continuing to play one-day cricket for Devon, joined Middlesex to play in the T20 competition.
Since 2017 Carr has made 21 T20 appearances for Middlesex Women and played a key role within the side that lifted the Women’s T20 County title in 2018.
The addition of Carr to Middlesex’s fifty-over ranks is a huge boost for the side, after she showed her new county teammates just what she was capable in the longer format of the game of last summer, when smashing an unbeaten 105 against them for Devon in May at Eastcote.
Carr will train with Middlesex Women over the remaining winter months ahead of the start of the domestic Women’s season.
Speaking of the addition of Carr to the Middlesex Women’s squad, Head of Women’s Cricket, Danni Warren, said:
“With such a big year in women’s cricket ahead, it is fantastic news that Middlesex will be able to benefit from the energy and experience that Amara brings.
“Amara has been a key factor in our success as a T20 side, both with the bat and behind the stumps.
“Her simple, but no-nonsense approach to the game really suits our squad and I cannot wait to see her get even more success in all formats this season.
“I have always thoroughly enjoyed working with Amara and know that as our supporters see more of her she will quickly become a favourite on and off the pitch.”
Amara Carr herself commented:
“I’m very excited to be able to commit to Middlesex across all formats for the 2020 season.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Middlesex Women’s T20 squad over the past few seasons and making this move seemed like the natural progression in what hopes to be an exciting year for Women’s cricket.
“I am very grateful to Middlesex for the support and opportunities they have continued to offer me and I look forward to working with them more closely in the future.”
