Middlesex Cricket is today delighted to announce that Dimitri Mascarenhas will re-join the club this summer to resume the role of Specialist T20 Bowling Coach throughout the Vitality Blast. The new two-year deal will also see Mascarenhas returning to Lord’s in 2021.
Since finishing his playing career in 2014, a move into coaching has seen Mascarenhas fulfil coaching roles with former New Zealand domestic side Otago, at the Big Bash with the Melbourne Renegades, with the New Zealand national side, and domestically in England with Essex.
He was initially appointed to the Middlesex coaching staff by Stuart Law early last summer and played a significant role in the turnaround of Middlesex’s white-ball fortunes, helping the club reach the knockout stages of the Vitality Blast for only the second time since Middlesex lifted the trophy in 2008.
On the re-appointment of Mascarenhas, Middlesex’s Head Coach, Stuart Law, commented:
“Dimi’s laid back, calm persona is a great asset and his coaching style reflects this trait.
“He has simple methods that resonate well with the boys and allows the players to grow, while guiding them through.
“We’re really looking forward to working with Dimi again during the T20 Blast campaign this season.”
On re-joining Middlesex, Mascarenhas himself, said:
"I loved my time last year and felt we made some progress on the bowling front and as a team.
“The opportunity to work with Stu Law and Nic Pothas, two International level coaches, is extremely exciting and brilliant for my development.
“The squad is very similar to last season and I'm sure we can make a huge play for the finals again. I can't wait to join up with the squad and continue what we started last year"
