Middlesex Cricket Signs West Indies Paceman Miguel Cummins
Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce the signing of Miguel Cummins.
The Barbados born, 29-year-old, right-arm fast bowler, has represented the West Indies in fourteen Test matches since 2016, collecting 27 wickets, with best Test bowling figures of 6 for 48. He also has eleven ODI caps to his name and has picked up a total of 210 wickets at 25.74 in 76 first-class appearances.
Cummins has joined up and trained with the Middlesex squad this week and will be available for selection against Durham tomorrow in the Specsavers County Championship match at Lord’s and for the final two four-day games of the season against Lancashire at Old Trafford and Derbyshire at Lord’s.
Speaking of the signing of Cummins, Angus Fraser, Middlesex Cricket’s Managing Director of Cricket commented:
“Stuart Law and Nic Pothas have both previously worked with Miguel in the West Indies and have spoken extremely positively about him as a man and what he can potentially offer Middlesex Cricket.
“At the end of a period of intense cricket it is inevitable that some of your fast bowlers begin to feel the strain of a season and complain of soreness and niggles. We have three big matches to play in this season’s County Championship and want to gain one of the three promotion places that are available.
“The signing of Miguel will add freshness and some hostility to our bowling attack and allow us to, hopefully, play fully fit bowlers in each game. He will provide us with something different and it is great for us to have the option of another Test quality bowler to pick from.”
