Welcome to the very first edition of the brand new Middlesex Cricket Podcast, hosted by former Middlesex cricketer and respected cricket writer Mike Selvey, or Selve as he's affectionately known.

Each month we'll be bringing you insights into all that's going on within Middlesex Cricket, with in depth interviews, features, and audio from Lord's Cricket Ground and around the county cricket scene.

In this first issue, Selve catches up with James Franklin and Richard Scott to chat about their preparations for this season as the club launches its defence of the County Championship title. He chats to Middlesex Cricket's Chief Executive Richard Goatley, who expands on the club's stance on the ECB's plans for a new T20 competition. Australian overseas player Adam Voges talks about re-joining the club, having announced his retirement from international cricket and domestic cricket with Western Australia earlier this year, plus he chats to former Saracens CEO, Ed Griffiths and Jarrod Lippiatt from the University of Hertfordshire, about an innovative degree course that ten of the Middlesex cricketers have enrolled upon.

We hope you enjoy listening to the new Middlesex Cricket Podcast.
