Former New Zealand international all-rounder Andre Adams has signed a two-year contract extension at Trent Bridge, which will see him stay at Nottinghamshire until the end of the 2011 season.
34-year-old Adams enjoyed a fine 2009 season, taking more wickets (43) than any other Nottinghamshire player in the LV County Championship and also chipping in with 300 runs.
Adams, who has also played county cricket for Essex, first joined Nottinghamshire in 2007 for a short spell before rejoining midway through last season.
Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell said: “Andre has been the pick of our bowlers this season and he’s maintained his form when others have struggled.
“We need to get the best out of our bowlers and Andre has shown that he is a very important player for us and has the ability to contribute in all competitions.
“He’ll feel that he could have done a bit more in one day matches this season but he will be an important part of our team for at least two more seasons.”
