James Middlebrook (born 13 March 1977,[1] Leeds, Yorkshire, England) is an English first-class cricketer, currently playing for Yorkshire County Cricket Club on a short-term contract. He is an all-rounder, who bats right-handed and bowls off spin.

Career[edit]

Middlebrook made his first-class debut in the 1998 English cricket season with Yorkshire, but was released by them in 2001.[1] In 2002 he plied his trade with Essex, taking 32 first-class wickets and 20 one day wickets. Middlebrook joined Northamptonshire for the start of the 2010 season.[2] In January 2010, Middlebrook along with new team-mate David Sales, was picked to represent the MCC against Durham in Abu Dhabi. Middlebrook was released by Northants at the end of the 2014 season following the club's relegation to Division 2. He was signed by Yorkshire County Cricket Club on a short-term contract as cover for Adil Rashid whilst the leg-spinner is part of England's tour party in the West Indies.
