Raj Nath, aged 51, has worked at Middlesex Cricket for the last eight years, and is an active member of the Club's Participation Team, working as a Participation Manager, focussing on harnessing closer relationships between Middlesex and our network of recreational Clubs in the county.
Raj's responsibilities see him around the county working with Clubs to assist them in improving their pitch standards, and also running the player transition competitions for Middlesex, including the Middlesex Development League (MDL), the Under 19's T20 Cup, and the Middlesex Youth Cup for both boys and girls.
As an active player of the game himself, Raj considered himself fit and healthy, however in April 2018 he suffered a heart attack, completely out of the blue, which brought home the importance of lowering cholesterol levels and keeping an eye on your own condition, especially amongst members of the South Asian community, who statistically are at more risk.
We are pleased to say that after a period of recuperation, Raj is now back to good health and has returned to work, and is now back to doing what he does best for Middlesex. Also, having had the health scare back in 2018, Raj has been working closely with Novartis Pharmaceuticals on their 'get back in the game campaign' to help raise awareness for others of the importance of maintaining low cholesterol levels and having regular checks.
Recently, Raj was interviewed by the Daily Mail, who featured his story, to bring a spotlight onto the great work being done in the name of the 'Get Back in the Game' campaign. You can read this article HERE
