Middlesex Crusaders - Ready to battle for champions league

Middlesex County Cricket Club is one of the 18 major county clubs which make up the English and Welsh domestic cricket structure, representing the historic county of Middlesex.

Middlesex crusaders are captained by Shaun Udal.He is a tall right handed batsmen and off break bowler and has represented England, and Middlesex during his wonderful career.

Though the side is full of talent the players that you should watch out for are Owais Shah, Shaun Udal, Tyron Henderson, Andrew strauss and India star Murali Karthik.

Owais shah and Andrew Strauss are currently on tour with the England team in India, if they are allowed by ECB to play for middlesex it will be a great boost to the sides batting line-up. Owais Shah is in great form with three fifties on India tour so far.

South African Tyron Henderson may not be a household name, but he is a dynamite both with bat and ball. He was instrumental in both the final and semi-final of their domestic twenty20 series. He scored an unbeaten 59 in the semi final and took two for 31.In the final he scored a 43 off 33 balls and was instrumental in Justin Kemp's runout. He is an all round player with lot to offer in this format of the game.

Shaun Udal and Murali karthik are two of the best spinners in champions league this season. Both with lots of domestic experience and with respect to karthik he has some international experience too. Karthik has been knocking on Indian team door forever, but the door doesnt seem to open. It remains a mystery why he is been repeatedly left out of the Indian side.Murali Karthik will be a key bowler along with shaun udal.The bowled well together during the stanford super series

Overall they dont start as the bookies favourites, but they will be looking to prove them wrong. They have the crusaders to battle in the middle so why not?? They can be one of the teams in the final or may be even win the champions League cricket title.
