Northamptonshire Player Number: N/A
Max, a talented top-order batsman, has joined Northamptonshire on loan from Middlesex until the end of June – and is no stranger to Wantage Road, having scored a century there for England Under-19s against Sri Lanka last season. He was appointed captain for this winter’s U19 four-day games in India. Cambridgeshire-born, he was spotted by County head coach David Ripley as a 13-year-old, but joined the Middlesex Academy and subsequently earned a four-year contract at Lord’s. He will be looking to play as much first-team cricket as possible with Northamptonshire to further his development.
England Under-19s coach Andy Hurry hailed “a special day for our cricket” after Max Holden and George Bartlett defied the classic sub-continental combination of heat and spin to hit centuries and share an unbroken stand of 254 on the first day of the first four-day match against India in Nagpur.
