In England and Wales, there are 18 first-class county clubs, and Middlesex County Cricket Club is one of them. The T20 Blast is an annual Twenty20 cricket competition held in England and Wales that Middlesex County Cricket Club takes part in.

There are a total of 18 teams competing in the T20 Blast, each representing a different country. It symbolizes the historic county of Middlesex, which is now formally a part of the ceremonial county of Greater London. The Club was established in 1864.

But teams from the county have been playing premier cricket since the first half of the 18th century, and the club has always been considered first-class. Middlesex has participated in every top-tier domestic cricket competition in England from the County Championships.

History of Middlesex

Namely the MCC Thursday Club circa 1800, but the current Middlesex CCC is the only one that truly belongs to the county. At a gathering in the London Tavern on December 15, 1863, the club was formally constituted. The formal constitution was established on February 2, 1864. The Walker family of Southgate, which had a number of great players including the renowned V. E. Walker, who in 1859 became the first player to take 10 wickets in an innings and make a century in the same match, were substantially responsible for the club’s establishment.

On June 6 and 7, 1864, Middlesex CCC met Sussex CCC in its first-ever first-class match at Islington. The team was a “Champion County” candidate in the same season. Due to the poor quality of the ground, Iti played at Lillie Bridge Grounds from 1869 until leaving in 1872. At this point, a vote to keep the club going was narrowly defeated (7–6). Prior to using Lord’s Cricket Ground in 1877, they played at Prince’s Cricket Ground from 1872 to 1876.
