Batsman Chris Nash has signed a new contract at Sussex which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2012 season.
Nash has scored 1,321 first-class runs with four centuries and he has been a part of Sussex's Twenty20 success, helping them win the Twenty20 Cup in 2009 and then participate in the inaugural Twenty20 Champions League in India.
He has also been selected in the ECB National Performance Squad and he said:
“I am delighted to sign an extension which keeps me at Sussex until 2012. 2009 was a very successful year in one day cricket for Sussex and also personally, but we were bitterly disappointed to be relegated in the championship. 2010 is a huge season for us as we look to continue our one day success, but also bounce back immediately in the championship.
"Having been involved with the EPP over the past few weeks, I am really excited about the coming month in South Africa and will return to Sussex in the new year in great shape for next season, where we can put into practise all that we have learnt from last season and also our experiences in the Champions League in India.”
Mike Yardy, Sussex captain, added: “Chris has performed very well this year. He’s just now coming of age as a cricketer which is why it is good that his work has been recognised by being selected in the performance squads. He’s a great asset to the club and an important part of our future.”
