Profile

A bustling, brisk seam bowler and middle-order batsman, Gareth Berg learned his cricket in South Africa, playing a handful of one-day games for Western Province B, before moving to live in England. In 2004 he played for Northamptonshire 2nd XI without breaking into the first team, then in 2007 was signed by Middlesex, again turning out for the 2nd XI. In the 2008 pre-season he took five wickets against England Under-19s on his home ground at Radlett, gaining him his first-team debut. His game has developed with age and in 2011 his all-round ability helped Middlesex to win Championship promotion as he averaged 41.87 with the bat and 19.96 with the ball. He continued to make valuable contributions with the bat and ball thereafter, impressing in all three formats of the game and topping 4,000 runs and 200 wickets overall for Middlesex. But he was injured during the first Championship game of 2014, against Nottinghamshire, and was ruled out of the season. Middlesex then cancelled the remaining year of his contract. Despite his ancestry. An Italian passport enabled him to sample international cricket with appearances for Italy in World T20 qualifiers in both 2012 and 2013.
