CRICKET: Falkland CC will stage Berkshire’s pre-season warm-up game with Middlesex at Enborne Lodge in April.

The 50-overs game will take place on Sunday, April 3, starting at 11am when Berkshire will face a Middlesex side that was runners-up to Yorkshire in the County Championship last season.

Two of their stars, Nick Compton and Steven Finn, played for England in the recent tour to South Africa, while the county's new signings for this year include New Zealanders Brendon McCullum and Mitchell McGlenaghan.

Berkshire spinner Chris Peploe, who was the club's 2015 player of the year, spent his first-class career with Middlesex.
