Chief Executive Officer of Middlesex County Cricket Club, Andrew Cornish, Director of Middlesex County Cricket Club, Alan Coleman, and Middlesex County Cricket Club representative, Mohsin Wariach, visited the Pakistan cricket headquarters in Lahore and signed a MoU with Pakistan Cricket Board today.

During the two-day visit, the delegation led by Cornish met with Chair of the PCB Management Committee, Zaka Ashraf, and other PCB officials, and discussed a wide range of matters of mutual interest related to cricket, including promotion, growth and development of the game. The Middlesex delegation also visited National Cricket Academy where they gave a presentation to PCB officials.

After further discussion, both parties signed an MoU. In the MoU, the parties expressed an interest in entering into a collaborative arrangement across a number of areas of mutual interest.

Some of the key pointers from the MoU are:

• Establishing a partnership between the parties to develop and jointly launch a T10 league. Both parties will be equal equity partners in this league subject to mutually agreed concept, business plan, financial projections and management structure

• Exploring the possibility of organising exhibition matches in Pakistan and the UK between HBL PSL teams and teams under the control of Middlesex County Cricket Club.

• Organising training and educational programs, including but not limited to courses for coaches, analysts, umpires and curators/groundsmen with focus on the latest technologies in such training and education.

• Middlesex will also work to develop and oversee training programs for women’s cricket teams operating under PCB, including the Pakistan national women’s team.
