Capital gains for London
Adam London has been handed a new one-year contract by Middlesex after starring for the second XI this season.
The 24-year-old was the leading scorer for the county’s back-ups last season, striking 800 runs at an average just shy of 40.
Middlesex's managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said: “Despite a lack of first-team opportunities, Adam continues to impress Middlesex's management team.
“We all believe he has the game that will allow him to score runs in first-class cricket when opportunities come along.
“The retirement of Andrew Strauss and departure of Scott Newman and Tom Scollay means that Adam is more likely to feature in the first XI in 2013.
“Along with Paul Stirling, Adam Rossington and Josh Davey, he will be competing for a batting slot should poor form or injury to other players come along.”
