Keshav Maharaj has been signed as an overseas player by Middlesex for the first four months of the 2023 season.
Maharaj, South Africa’s left-arm spinner, will arrive in time for Middlesex’s third Championship game against Nottinghamshire on April 20 and will be available for eight four-day fixtures and the entire T20 Blast.
Alan Coleman, Middlesex’s director of cricket, stated that bringing in a “world-class talent” was “essential” ahead of the club’s first season in the Championship’s top division since 2017, and that he would mentor Luke Hollman and Thilan Walallawita.
