Managing Director of Cricket at Middlesex, Angus Fraser was all in praise for the Irish all-rounder. He was sad that the club will miss the services of Mitchell Marsh but was glad to have a strong and clean striker of the ball, Paul Stirling back into the side.

“Losing Mitch Marsh is obviously a blow, but if a team is looking for a strong, clean striker of a cricket ball, Paul is highly qualified to fill the role,” said Angus Fraser, the MD of Cricket at Middlesex.

“Paul made a huge impression on Middlesex members and supporters during his initial time with the Club and it will be great to see him once again wearing a Middlesex shirt and representing the club,” he added.

Mitchell Marsh might not return to the Middlesex side after completing the West Indies tour due to the strict quarantine rules and travel restrictions. The club is expected to make an announcement of a replacement player for the latter half of the tournament in due course.
