Knight Frank and Middlesex Cricket Virtual Series

A professional sports team & corporate team:

What can we learn from each other?



Born in Watford in 1989, pace bowler Steven Finn, now 31, joined the Middlesex Academy at a young age and made both his Second Eleven and First Eleven debuts for the club in 2015 aged just sixteen, making him Middlesex’s youngest ever first-class debutant.

His progress at an early age and his electrifying pace saw him called up to England’s Under-19 ranks, who he represented between 2006 and 2008. The summer of 2008 was when he cemented his position in the Middlesex first eleven, missing just one first-class appearance all season and picking up 28 wickets. He followed this up in 2009 with 53 wickets as an ever present in Middlesex’s Championship side, putting him on the radar for England’s Test selectors.

The following winter he made his Test debut with England in Bangladesh, aged just 20, and in 2011 became the youngest ever England bowler to reach 50 Test wickets when playing in a series against Sri Lanka.

Finn went on to make 36 Test appearances for his country, picking up 125 wickets, and a total of 90 One Day International and T20 International appearances for England, picking up a further 129 wickets.

He has played at Middlesex his entire career, has played over 400 times for the club, and has taken nearly 900 wickets across all three domestic formats of the game.

In 2020 Steven captained Middlesex in the Vitality Blast.


Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1994, batsman Stephen Eskinazi, now 26, joined Middlesex in 2013 and made his Second Eleven debut for the club that summer. He is now qualified for England as a local cricketer, through long-term residency in the UK.

Initially an apprenticeship in the Middlesex Second Eleven served him well and from an early age was singled out for Captaincy material for the club, leading Middlesex’s Second Eleven teams in the Championship, Trophy and T20 competitions.

He made his first eleven debut in the summer of 2015 against Yorkshire at Lord’s and has gone on to make 112 first eleven appearances for the club across all three domestic competitions.

A blend of powerful stroke-play and sublime timing make Eskinazi a force at the top of the Middlesex batting order, as his highest score of 179 and seven centuries for the club more than testify to.

In 2020 Stephen captained Middlesex in the Bob Willis Trophy.
