Middlesex County Cricket Club have capped a remarkable season by being awarded the MCC Spirit of Cricket award at last night’s PCA awards at the Royal Albert Hall.
Finishing rock bottom of the first division with a staggering 1 win, 7 draws and 8 loses, Middlesex have certainly done their part to keep the famous English “amateur spirit” of the game alive. Indeed at no point this summer could someone have accused them of looking “professional”.
Working hard to secure the bottom spot in their Pro40 League division ensures a famous double relegation and a solid platform (of bedrock) to build on next year.
Captain Andrew Strauss was quoted as saying “Middle who? Oh them, yeah, bad luck about that, I’m sure the’ll do better next year.”
Former Middlesex captain Mark Ramprakash, who was presented with the PCA Player of the Year award, decliend to comment.
