PREVIEW: Middlesex Favourites To Retain Pemberton Greenish Cup

Tomorrow – Tuesday 24th May – sees The Oval host the second annual Pemberton Greenish Cup between Surrey and Middlesex.

Last season, Middlesex took home the silverware, thanks to a solid 46 from Fran Wilson and some tight bowling from Alex Hartley.

The Middlesex “Meatballs” have to be narrow favourites to retain the trophy, having already beaten their London rivals once this season, in a low-scoring encounter in the Women’s County Championship, when Wilson and Hartley were once again the linchpins; though they will be without the injured Wilson at The Oval.

If Surrey are going to overturn the odds, two key players will be Kirstie White – their wicket-keeper batsman, who is averaging 49 in the County Championship – and skipper Cecily Scutt, who is the leading wicket-taker in Division 1 with 10 wickets, including a five-for against… Middlesex!

The action gets started under the lights at The Oval at 6:30pm, but if you’ve got kids, get there early as there will be all sorts of activities going on from 4:00pm, including rumoured appearances by some England stars!

And the best news… it’s all free – so we’ll see you there!
