Mark Ramprakash is to join up with his ex county Middlesex, as a batting coach. The former Middlesex, Surrey and England International batsmen has a wealth of knowledge of the game, of batting and of Lords and should help Middlesex greatly.
Mark Ramprakash finished his first class career in 2012 with 35659 runs, 114 centuries and an incredible 147 fifties. He was the stalwart of Surrey’s middle order for much of the last 5 years, and had a strong career at both Surrey (12 years) and before moving to Surrey he spent 14 years at Middlesex.
Middlesex have a lot of young batsmen emerging that will benefit greatly from the knowledge and expertise of such a domestic champion. Mark Ramprakash said “Middlesex is the club that gave me the chance to achieve what I have in cricket and I am delighted to be able to return to work with and help the current and next generation of Middlesex cricketers. I am excited by the talent in the current crop of players and look forward to contributing to the club.”
Some of the young talents that Ramprakash such as Joe Denly, Paul Sterling, Dawid Malan, John Simpson and Sam Robson, who are all potentially really good players for the county in the coming season having , and some of course will also have International ambitions.
This is a positive move for Middlesex bringing in a familiar yet experienced batting coach, fresh from ending his career and therefore still in touch with the game and holding recent experience.
