(M) County Championship: Middlesex Cricket v Sussex ~ Friday 24 to Monday 27 May

🏏 Middlesex Cricket welcome high-flying Sussex to Lord’s for their latest home match of the 2024 County Championship Division Two season.  Play starts at 11am daily and ticket details are below.

Middlesex are a team on a mission this season following their relegation from the County Championship top-flight in 2023.  Can they mount a promotion charge?  Middlesex Cricket tickets are on sale to find out.

It’s been a rollercoaster few years for Middlesex Cricket.  Division One County Champions in 2016, they suffered a shock relegation the following season.   After a five-year absence the team based at Lord’s secured promotion back to the top tier of county cricket in England and Wales in 2022.  But life in the top flight only lasted one season after Middlesex were relegated once again.  A dramatic two-wicket defeat to Nottinghamshire on the final day of the season consigned the Lord’s team to a 2024 campaign in Division Two.

MATCH BUILD-UP

And so the battle to retain their Division One status continues this week against Sussex.  It’s a top-of-the-table clash between two sides who are unbeaten so far.  Led by captain Toby Roland-Jones,  Middlesex will be full of confidence after their recent comprehensive six-wicket win over Yorkshire.  Leus Du Plooy (the Derbyshire talisman signed for 2024 by Middlesex on a five-year contract) and Ryan Higgins shared a match-winning stand of 59 to steer the hosts to victory.  See below for highlights of the third and final day at Lord’s.  Sussex are also on a hot streak, crushing Derbyshire by an innings and 124 runs last time out.  The league leaders needed less than three days to complete their demolition job.  Jayden Seales was the star man for Sussex causing chaos with his swing bowling.

At the time of writing Middlesex are second in the table on 68 points, 6 points behind leaders Sussex.  After this week’s match, the Vitality Blast takes centre stage at Lord’s before County Cricket returns on Sunday 23 June with a four-day showdown between Middlesex and Derbyshire.

Eight teams in total feature in Division Two – Middlesex are joined by Derbyshire, Glamorgan, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Yorkshire.
