Daryl Mitchell joins Middlesex for last nine group stage matches

English County Cricket Middlesex has announced that kiwi’s all-rounder Daryl Mitchell will be joining Middlesex for the last nine group matches of the Vitality T20 Blast.

Earlier this week Middlesex has confirmed that the batsman Paul String will be joining the club for the opening five matches of this season’s Vitality Blast tournament. Both the players are signed as replacements for Mitchell Marsh who is currently unavailable. As he is selected to represent Australia against West Indies in the Windies home series.

Daryl Mitchell has 2,000 T20 domestic runs registered in his name. He has been playing for Northern districts for almost a decade before shifting to Canterbury. Mitchell has displayed a surreal performance with the ball by scalping fifty T20 wickets for both teams. Now joining the Middlesex club with some valuable test, ODI & T20I experience under his belt he has displayed a stand-out performance for New Zealand in the year 2019. Since then he has played in 19 limited over matches for New Zealand with 15 matches in the T20 format.

Speaking about the inclusion of Mitchell to Middlesex’s Vitality Blast squad for the year 2021, Middlesex Head Coach Stuart Law commented, “It’s great that Daryl will play for us in the T20 Blast this season. He is a highly recommended player by his New Zealand contemporaries & we have watched him force his way into that strong New Zealand team over the last few years”.

Speaking about his inclusion in the Middlesex county club, Mitchell said, “I am really honored to have signed with Middlesex & to be able to call Lord’s my home for the Vitality Blast. I am looking forward to meeting up with the group members after our test championship final against India & getting stuck into winning some T20 Cricket”.
