Bowler Craig Miles signs two-year contract extension with Warwickshire CCC
Bowler Craig Miles has underlined his Bears commitment by signing a two-year contract extension as he promises fans “the best is yet to come”.
The 28-year-old, who had one-year left on his previous deal, has put pen to paper on a new contract that will run until the end of the 2025 season.
Miles has become a key figure in all formats having joined from Gloucestershire in 2018.
The right-arm paceman shone during the Bears 2021 double-winning season, taking three wickets on the final day against Somerset to secure the County Championship, before adding a Bears career-best of 5 for 28 against Lancashire to help lift the Bob Willis Trophy at Lord’s.
During the 2022 campaign, Miles’ white ball skills were rewarded with a call-up for the Northern Supercharges in The Hundred following a senior role in the attack, which saw Miles take a career-best 20 wickets.
In total, the Swindon-born seamer has 114 wickets from 61 matches in all formats for the Bears.
Miles said: “I’m absolutely delighted to secure my future at the Bears.
“Since joining the Club, I have loved every minute and I can’t wait to build on our recent successes over the next three years.
“Winning the County Championship and Bob Willis Trophy in 2021 fulfilled a lifelong dream and those memories will always stay with me.
“When negotiations were opened, I was determined to stay at the Club and as a 28-year-old I feel I have my best years ahead of me.”
