England’s Andrew Strauss will make a rare appearance for Middlesex in their Twenty20 clash with Essex at Southgate.
Strauss will lead the Crusaders for the first time in this year’s competition after starring for England in the recent NatWest Series.
A century at Lord’s and a valuable 61 at Bristol - both in partnership with Andrew Flintoff - were the highlights of a fine series for the 27-year-old, who averages almost 48 in limited overs internationals.
Middlesex cruised to a nine-wicket win over Derbyshire in the totesport League yesterday, with Strauss sharing an unbroken century stand with opener Paul Weekes.
However, they are yet to win a Twenty20 game this season, and will face stiff opposition from the unbeaten Eagles.
