10 best players of all time from Middlesex
A look at 10 of the finest cricketers who represented the English county.
Founded in 1864 and tracing its history back to the 18th century, Middlesex is one of the oldest county cricket teams in England. It plays its home games at England's finest cricket stadium, Lord's, and has been one of the most successful county teams in English domestic cricket over the years.
Over the course of its glittering cricketing history, some of the best players in the world have played first-class cricket for the team and made the County Championships one of the most competitive domestic cricketing competitions in the world.
Here is a look at 10 of the best ever players from Middlesex:
10 Jack Robertson
Jack Robertson was a right-handed opening batsman who played for Middlesex between 1937 and 1959 and proved to be one of the best batsmen in the county circuit throughout the course of his career.
Robertson scored 27,088 runs for the county in his career and stands 4th in the all-time list of run scorers for Middlesex. Robertson's run-scoring did earn him a call-up to the English national team and in the 11 Tests that he played, he averaged 46.36 and made two centuries.
However, he was inexplicably dropped after he had scored a century against Australia and never made it back into the side. That being said, his distinguished 22 years career for Middlesex makes him one of the best batsmen to have played for the county.
