Rogers to remain Middlesex skipper

Chris Rogers will continue to captain Middlesex in next season’s County Championship.

The Australian batsman, 35, took on the role when Neil Dexter decided to step down in April in a bid to regain his best form.

Dexter will lead the side in CB40 and FL t20 competition in 2013.

He relinquished the captaincy with a view to reclaiming it at a later date, but it has been decided that Rogers will stay on.

“Each possess outstanding qualities. It therefore felt right to leave the arrangements as they were,” explained Middlesex’s managing director of cricket Angus Fraser.

“The challenge for Neil and Chris, indeed everyone at Middlesex, is to build on what we have achieved in the past two seasons.

“I believe the captaincy arrangements we have put in place give Middlesex the best chance of achieving this.”
