Middlesex want Tendulkar after signing Gilchrist
Thursday 19 November 2009
Middlesex have signed Adam Gilchrist for the group matches of next season's Twenty20 Cup - and are confident of securing Sachin Tendulkar as well.
Australian Gilchrist has committed to play for the Panthers while Indian great Tendulkar is mulling over an offer to form a dynamic partnership at the top of the order.
Tendulkar is yet to get approval from the Board of Control for Cricket in India but Middlesex chief executive Vinny Codrington is hopeful of securing a double coup.
"Adam has signed for the group matches of next season's Twenty20 but has other commitments and is unable to commit beyond that at this stage," confirmed Codrington.
"We have been in discussions with Sachin and his agent for quite a while but he has been concentrating on the one-day series against Australia and the current Test match against Sri Lanka.
"He has been pretty tied up so we are awaiting to hear from him and hope for some news soon."
