London, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 27th Oct, 2021 ) :Former Australia batsman Stuart Law has been sacked as head coach of Middlesex with a year left on his contract, the English county team announced on Wednesday.
The Lord's-based side lost seven of their first 10 County Championship matches in 2021 and were consequently placed in competition's bottom tier during the season's second stage.
Their white-ball performances were also dismal as the club finished second from bottom in the group stage of England's domestic 50-over and Twenty20 competitions.
Middlesex chief executive Andrew Cornish thanked Law for his dedication but added "on-field performances have not been up to the standards we require".
Law made an unbeaten half-century in his only Test for Australia in 1995 and played in 54 one-day internationals between 1994 and 1999.
He retired with a first-class record of 27,080 runs, 79 hundreds and an average exceeding 50.
