London:Adam Gilchrist has signed up for a brief spell of Twenty20 cricket with Middlesex next year and could be opening the English county's batting with Sachin Tendulkar.
The Indian star is considering an offer to link up with Australia's Gilchrist at Middlesex.
"Adam has signed for the group matches of next season's Twenty20 Cup but has other commitments and is unable to commit beyond that at this stage," said Middlesex chief executive Vinny Codrington.
"We have been in discussions with Sachin and his agent for quite a while but he has been concentrating on the one-day series against Australia and the current Test match against Sri Lanka.
"He has been pretty tied up so we are awaiting to hear from him and hope for some news soon."
