Middlesex Cricket CEO shuts down members forum abruptly due to the death of England’s Queen


Andrew Cornish, Chief Executive Officer of Middlesex Cricket, writes an open letter to its members. Last Thursday, they held an online member’s forum to discuss their concerns revolving around the ECB’s High-Performance Review. However, they had to end it midway as the news of the Queen of England’s death surfaced. They took this decision to mourn and pay their respects to the Queen.

He further informed its members that the ECB will delay the publication of the performance review until after the Queen’s funeral, which is to be held on the 19th of September. The future date is yet to be finalized. ECB has not released any information on England’s domestic cricket schedule for 2024. They will communicate with all the county members on time.

‘We have more time to discuss, debate, and consult with our members on this process,’ says Middlesex Cricket CEO

He further stated the next date for the online forum and promised to discuss and acknowledge all the concerns regarding the performance review process.

“We have more time to discuss, debate, and consult with our members on this process, which can only be a positive thing, and as such, we will be expanding the agenda of the planned Middlesex members’ End of Season Forum, scheduled for Monday 3rd October 2022, to also include any questions the membership has on the High-Performance Review process”

He informs the club members that the forum will take place after the SGM on the same day.

“The SGM and End of Season Forum will take place in the Thomas Lord Suite, from 6 pm, starting with the SGM, followed by the Forum, before members are invited to join Board Directors, staff, and fellow members for a complimentary glass of wine or two to bring the season to an end”

“This Forum will take place after the Special General Meeting, being held on the same day, which has one item of business – further revisions to the Club Rules”

ECB High-Performance Review proposals

ECB’s high-performance review has allegedly proposed fewer domestic matches to manage the workload of the players. They will also allegedly cut down on the number of county clubs. Presently, there are 18 county clubs in total. The Hundred tournament is likely to stay. The review committee is led by a former England cricketer, Andrew Strauss. The decision made by the committee will have to be accepted by all. The proposals will have to pass the consultation stage to get final approval.
