19-year-old Dutch international batsman Alexei Kervezee has signed two-year contract extension at Worcestershire.
Kervezee arrived at New Road aged 17 in 2007 and has since developed, scoring a career-best 75 in an ODI against Canada and a One-Day century for the Netherlands earlier this year and a maiden Championship half-century and has been rewarded for this with a new deal, which takes him through to the end of the 2012 season.
"I am delighted that Alexei has come to us and asked to commit his future to the County," Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes said.
"He is a very dedicated and talented cricketer and has developed tremendously over the last two years to the extent that he is ready for 1st XI cricket on a regular basis. He scored his maiden one day hundred this year for Holland and his maiden Championship half century earlier in the season. I am really looking forward to seeing his career flourish in the near future."
