Worcestershire's Dutch batsman Alexei Kervezee has signed a contract extension keeping him at New Road until the end of the 2015 season.

Kervezee joined the club as a 16-year-old and has recently broken into the first team and he would qualify to play for England by June 2011 by residency and he continues to play for the Netherlands when available.

Director of Cricket, Steve Rhodes, said: "Alexei is developing into a very fine cricketer and is one of the young talented players we want to keep at this Club for a long time. We are delighted he sees his long term future with us."

Kervezee added: "Since arriving in Worcester four years ago, I have really settled in well and am grateful for the opportunities Worcestershire has given me to forge a career in first class cricket. In return I want to commit my future here and be part of what I think is a very positive future."

Kervezee, who played for the Netherlands at the 2007 World Cup, has played 29 One-Day Internationals and six Twenty20 Internationals for his country.
