MARK RAMPRAKASH EXTENDS CONSULTANT BATTING COACH ROLE WITH MIDDLESEX UNTIL END OF 2022 SEASON

Middlesex Cricket is today delighted to announce that Mark Ramprakash, who has been working with the Club as a Consultant Batting Coach over the winter, will continue to work with the players alongside Middlesex’s new Men’s Professional coaching team through to the end of the 2022 season.

Former player Ramprakash shone as a Middlesex player for fourteen seasons after making his professional debut for the Club as a seventeen-year-old in 1987. He went on to hit over 15,000 First-Class runs for Middlesex - one of only seventeen players to do so, before leaving in 2000 with a first-class batting average of 50.48.

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.

Speaking of the impact that Ramprakash has had on the Middlesex playing group over the winter, and on him extended his position at the Club, Head of Men’s Performance Cricket, Alan Coleman, commented:

“Since Ramps joined us at the start of our winter training programme, the impact he’s had has been incredible. He has brought an energy to our sessions that not only engages the players but constantly challenges them to improve.

“I share Ramps’ view that you don’t want to waste a single session and that getting in the nets isn’t simply about hitting balls. He raises the intensity, puts the players under pressure in scenario-based sessions, where every ball counts and every shot matters.

“He has engaged the group, who are showing plenty of signs of responding well to his methods, and in Ramps we have a Coach that completely gets what we’re trying to achieve as a playing group and coaching team and cares deeply about the Club.

“I’m thrilled that he has committed himself to the group for the rest of this season, and I can’t wait to see what we can collectively achieve with him as an important part of the coaching unit.”
