Vitality T20 Blast 2021 – Daryl Mitchell joins Middlesex for Blast spell


New Zealand allrounder available for nine group-stage games as replacement for Mitchell Marsh

Middlesex have further strengthened their squad for this year’s Vitality Blast by bringing in New Zealand allrounder Daryl Mitchell. Having signed Paul Stirling for the start of the tournament, Mitchell will come in for the last nine group games.

The pair were recruited after Middlesex lost out on the services of Mitchell Marsh, with the Australia allrounder called up for the tour of the Caribbean.

“It’s great that Daryl has agreed to play for us in the T20 Blast this season,” Middlesex’s head coach, Stuart Law, said. “He comes highly recommended by his New Zealand contemporaries and we have watched him force his way into that strong New Zealand team over the last few years.
