NORMAN COWANS LOOKS BACK ON HIS BRILLIANT CAREERS WITH BOTH MIDDLESEX AND ENGLAND
In the latest of our series of interviews in Black History Month, Middlesex's Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, caught up with former teammate Norman Cowans, to celebrate the achievements of the Jamaicanborn paceman's brilliant careers with both Middlesex and England.
Cowans, one of a crop of hugely talented black cricketers to play for the club in one of its most successful eras, made a total of 362 appearances for Middlesex domestically and received 42 caps for England across both Test and ODI formats.
He played a part in Middlesex sides that lifted ten trophies in a glittering career which started in 1980 and ended in 1993, winning four County Championships, two Benson and Hedges Cups, two Gillette Cups, one Sunday League title and one Refuge Assurance Cup.
He took 532 first-class wickets, 212 List-A wickets and claimed 77 catches in total and remains Middlesex's 26th highest first-class wicket taker of all time.
