Stephen Eskinazi to Captain Middlesex for Four Days

Stephen Eskinazi will be the captain of Middlesex in the four-day competition of the Bob Willis Trophy. 

The four-day Bob Willis Trophy event will be held as a replacement of the County Championship which had been postponed due to COVID-19. The said event will be held on August 1 and is very much looked forward to by the different county cricket clubs, including Middlesex who just had a new captain. 

Stephen Eskinazi was asked to take over the captaincy for the said event as original team captain Peter Handscomb had his contract deferred until 2021-2022. With that, Eskinazi will lead the team for their upcoming match. His vice-captain will be Toby Roland-Jones who had also been granted with a leadership role. 

As per Middlesex head coach Stuart Law, ‘Steve was the obvious choice for me as the captain of our squad in Pete Handscomb's absence. Last year when Steve stood in for us, the team played really well and with a smile on their face and had immediate success. Good signs for sure and I look forward to working with him again this season’. 

‘Toby is a leader and a much loved and respected member in the dressing room. I look forward to him leading this group in partnership with Steve, and help mould this squad into the team they can be’, he added.
