Injury rules Keshav Maharaj out of joining Middlesex CCC this season
Middlesex Cricket can regrettably confirm this morning that South Africa’s Keshav Maharaj will no longer be joining the Club this year, with the left-arm spinner ruled out through injury.
Whilst representing his country at the weekend Maharaj ruptured the Achilles tendon in his left leg – an injury that saw him stretchered from the field of play.
Middlesex Cricket’s Director of Cricket, Alan Coleman, commented:
“We are naturally extremely disappointed that Keshav will not be joining Middlesex this year after sustaining this freak injury and we are saddened to hear that he will face a significant absence from playing.
“It goes without saying that everyone at the Club wishes him a speedy recovery.
“For us to lose Kesh so close to the start of the new season is a blow, however he wasn’t scheduled to begin playing for us until late April, which buys us a little time to put Plan B into action.
“We will of course keep everyone updated on the situation regarding a replacement overseas player for the coming season.”
