He is proud, honest, hard-working and has set a wonderful example to our young and seasoned cricketers. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him.<br /> <br /> "At Middlesex CCC we are fortunate enough to have a number of talented young fast bowlers who need to be pushing for 1st-class cricket. The challenge for them is to seamlessly fill the hole created by Corey's departure.<br /> <br /> "Like Middlesex's previous Barbadian cricketers — Wayne Daniel, Desmond Haynes, Roland Butcher and Pedro Collins — Corey will always be welcome at Lord's," Fraser added.
