We are delighted today to be able to announce the fixtures for the 2023 season, with both the Middlesex Men's First Eleven and Sunrisers Women's Elite fixtures now released.

Despite there being plenty of debate in recent months over the future scheduling of the domestic season, the structure of the Men’s game in 2023 will remain largely unchanged, as reported, closely replicating that of 2022, with the season split into five distinct blocks, which each block primarily centred around one of the three formats of the game.

2023 kicks off with a block of six County Championship fixtures between early April and the end of May, followed by the Vitality Blast T20 competition, which begins at the end of May and runs through to the first week of July. Within this T20 block there is one County Championship fixture sandwiched in, in late June, and then, upon completion of the Blast group stages, a further three further County Championship matches will be played in the height of the summer, between early July and the end of the month. Attention then turns to the fifty-over competition, which will be played alongside the Hundred during the month of August, before the season concludes with the remaining four County Championship clashes of the season to be played in September.

Lord’s will again host six of Middlesex’s seven home County Championship matches, plus four of our home Vitality Blast matches, and one of our One-Day Cup fixtures. All other home fixtures will be played at out-ground venues, with Merchant Taylors School again chosen to host our one Championship match away from Lord’s, plus, in 2023, two of our Vitality Blast matches. Radlett will again host a T20 Blast clash, plus two of our home One-Day Cup matches, with the venue of our one other One-Day Cup match away from Lord’s still to be confirmed.

Middlesex’s early season block of fixtures sees four of our opening six County Championship matches being played at home, all at Lord’s, with Essex up first at the Home of Cricket, beginning on 6th April, with Nottinghamshire, Kent, and Somerset also coming to St John’s Wood early in the season. Our two away fixtures in this opening block see us heading to Northampton and Surrey.

Our Blast campaign also gets underway with a home clash at Lord’s, when we take on London rivals Surrey on Thursday 25th May. Our next three home Blast clashes are all at out-grounds, with two at Merchant Taylors’ against Gloucestershire and Glamorgan, and then one at Radlett against Hampshire, with our final three home T20 clashes all being played at Lord’s, against Sussex, Kent and finally Essex.

We kick off our fifty-over One-Day Cup campaign away to Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl on 1st August, with home fixtures against Surrey, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire all being played at out-grounds, with Lord’s hosting our match against Lancashire on Sunday 20th August.

The final block of the season sees us playing three of our remaining County Championship fixtures away from home, at Essex, Lancashire, and Nottinghamshire, with one home clash in this finishing block against Warwickshire in the penultimate round of the season.

Middlesex members also get free entry into all Sunrisers home matches in 2023 (with the exception of the double header at Northampton on 31st May), and the Women’s Elite fixtures were also released today!

The highlight of Sunrisers season will undoubtedly be them making their maiden appearance at Lord’s in 2023, when they’ll finally get to play on the hallowed turf of the Home of Cricket! Their debut at Lord’s will be part of an exciting double-header fixture on Thursday 25th May, with Sunrisers vs South East Stars up first in the Charlotte Edwards Cup, followed by the Middlesex vs Surrey Vitality Blast clash right afterwards.
