Middlesex Cricket is today delighted to announce that former batsman, Captain and Batting Coach Mark Ramprakash is re-joining the Club as a Consultant Batting Coach, to work with the playing squad over the winter ahead.
Ramprakash starred as a Middlesex player for fourteen seasons, making his debut as a seventeen-year-old in 1987, and went on to hit over 15,000 First-Class runs for the Club, one of only seventeen players to do so, before leaving in 2000 with a phenomenal batting average of 50.48 in the long form of the game.
He amassed an incredible 46 First-Class centuries and 73 half-centuries for the Club in 211 appearances, with nineteen centuries hit at the Home of Cricket. In addition, he added a further 7,445 List-A runs as a Middlesex player, the fourth highest total of any player in the limited overs cricket in the Club’s history.
Between 2012 and 2014 Ramprakash returned to Middlesex as Batting Coach, working as part of Head Coach Richard Scott’s coaching team.
Ahead of Ramprakash starting work with the Middlesex squad next week, Interim Head Coach Alan Coleman commented:
“I’m delighted to be able to welcome Ramps back to the Club to help our batting group over the winter months.
“His knowledge of batting at Lord’s will be invaluable, and I’m certain his energy and love of the game will rub off on our group. It’ll will be a pleasure for us all to work with him, and I can’t wait to see him in action.”
On his return to Lord’s, Ramprakash himself said:
“I am delighted to have been asked to wear the three Seaxes again and support the Middlesex players & staff in their winter programme.
They are a talented bunch & I look forward to helping them in their journey to be the best they can be & achieve their potential”.
