We are delighted today to be able to unveil the domestic fixtures for the 2024 season, with both the Middlesex Men's First Eleven and Sunrisers Women's Elite fixtures now announced.
In 2024, the structure of the Men’s game will remain largely the same as last year, with the season separated into four distinct blocks, which each block primarily centring around one of the three different formats of the game.
The season will kick off in early April with a block of red-ball four-day cricket, with the opening seven matches in the County Championship being played before the end of May. We get underway with a home clash against Glamorgan at Lord’s on Friday 5th April.
Attention then turns to a block of T20 games, beginning at the end of May and running through to the completion of the group stages of the competition in mid-July, with all fourteen matches played in the space of seven weeks’, with two County Championship games sandwiched into this block - both starting towards the end of June.
Upon completion of the Blast group stages, white-ball cricket continues as the Metro Bank One-Day Cup gets underway, with all eight group stage matches condensed into a three-week block from the end of July to mid-August.
The season then concludes with the final five County Championship matches of the season, played from the end of August through to the end of September, with our season concluding with an away encounter down in Hove against Sussex, between 26th and 29th September.
The climax of the two white-ball competitions will conclude in September, with Finals Day of the Vitality Blast on Saturday 14th September at Edgbaston and the Final of the Metro Bank One-Day Cup on Sunday 22nd September at Trent Bridge.
Lord’s will again host six of Middlesex’s seven home County Championship matches, plus four of our home Vitality Blast matches, and this year we hope to be able to play two of our four home Metro Bank One-Day Cup fixtures at Lord’s, which we hope to be able to confirm in the near future.
Our one home County Championship match away from Lord’s will be played at Merchant Taylors’ School in Northwood at the end of August, with both of our home Metro Bank One-Day Cup games away from Lord’s being played at Radlett Cricket Club.
In the Vitality Blast, we will again play one out-ground match at Radlett, with the two remaining home South Group Blast matches being taken to Chelmsford, where we will play at the Cloud County Ground, as announced earlier today.
The Sunrisers’ season will also look much like 2023, in that the season will be split into three distinct blocks, although 2024 will see the Sunrisers playing four more Charlotte Edwards Cup matches than last season, with the competition expanded to ten group matches.
The season gets underway with a block of six fifty-over Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy matches, from mid-April to mid-May, starting with an away trip to Cardiff where Sunrisers will take on Storm. After the opening six fifty-over encounters, the twenty over Charlotte Edwards Cup then kicks off, with all ten group matches played before mid-June.
The season then concludes with the final block of Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy games from mid-June through to early September, with Sunrisers’ season coming to an end with a trip to Southampton to take on Vipers.
Having made their competitive debut at Lord’s in 2023, the Sunrisers will again return to the Home of Cricket next season, playing in two double-header fixtures on the same day that Middlesex are in action in the Vitality Blast, against .
