The first-class counties list was announced on Tuesday, November 27 where the news that Radlett Cricket Club had also been awarded its first London one-day cup match.

It was decided that Middlesex are set to play away from Lord’s next season. As well as being the hosts for the Specsavers County Championship – Division Two four-day match. 

The RL50 match date begins on Wednesday, May 1 against Somerset. The county championship match against Glamorgan takes place on Monday, June 17 to Thursday, June 20. 

Radlett Cricket Club received top marks in a recent survey that was taken, from all out-grounds used nationally by 18 first-class counties. 

With Radlett scoring top marks, it gave Middlesex the confidence to award them with their first ever county championship match. 

Colin Warne, club secretary, said: “We have successfully hosted one-day matches each season since 2015. 

“It’s a real feather in the club’s cap to additionally get a four day match.

“We hope the Radlett public will come along in numbers to make both events a great success.”
