Middlesex Women to play historic fixture next month

Middlesex Women will play on the main Lord’s ground for the first time next month, facing an MCC side captained by Charlotte Edwards.

The Twenty20 match on April 24 will form the centrepiece of MCC’s Women’s Day, which is expected to bring 4,000 schoolchildren to the historic venue.

Edwards, the former England skipper, will be joined by 2017 World Cup winners Sarah Taylor and Georgia Elwiss in the MCC XI.

The match will be streamed live on the Middlesex website.
