Middlesex quartet pen new terms

19th December 2017, 18:16 by Bobbie Jackson

Middlesex quartet Eoin Morgan, Toby Roland-Jones, Ollie Rayner and Stevie Eskinazi have all penned new contracts.

England limited-overs captain Morgan made his debut for the county in 2005 and has gone on to score more than 7,000 runs for them.

The 31-year-old has agreed to commit his future to the club despite suffering relegation from Division One of the County Championship last season.

Roland-Jones is the other high-profile name to extend his stay, having taken 458 wickets in 181 appearances, and he will be key in trying to help Middlesex secure promotion.

Meanwhile, Rayner and Eskinazi have also been rewarded by the Lord’s outfit, although Middlesex have not disclosed the length of the quartet’s deals.

"Obviously Middlesex had a difficult season, but we have many fine players and there are plenty of good things happening at the club," managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said.

"I have total faith these players will help us get back to where we all want to be."
