Nottinghamshire off-spinner Matthew Carter has signed a new two-year contract with the Club.

The 23-year-old has committed his future to the county with a deal until the end of the 2021 campaign, which will take his first-team career into its seventh season.

The England Lions international enjoyed a landmark campaign in 2019, taking 14 wickets at 19.78 in the Vitality Blast as the Outlaws reached their third Finals Day in four years.

“There’s no better place for me to develop my game than at Trent Bridge with Notts,” he said.

“White ball cricket went really for me this year, which is something I obviously want to continue, and I want to be more involved in the red-ball team too.

“With promotion to aim for in the Championship – and also for our white-ball side to achieve what it’s capable of by winning a trophy – there’s loads for us to achieve here in 2020 and beyond.”

A successful product of Nottinghamshire’s association with Lincolnshire in recent years, Carter made his First-Class debut for the club in 2015.

The twirler maintained a miserly economy rate of 6.59 in the 2019 Blast, his first full campaign in the competition, as well as taking six of his wickets in the powerplay overs.

“Matt is proving himself to be a really exciting player,” said Head Coach Peter Moores.

“He’s not fazed by bowling at the best players at the most difficult times – and he rose to the challenge this summer of being one of our key powerplay bowlers.

“He became a trusted, go to bowler for us last summer and he earned that trust from his captain on merit with his performances.

“He’s one of a number of young cricketers we have here with really exciting potential. The key for us now is to grow together as a team and build something successful.

“Matt can be a key part of that with both the red and white ball and that’s what we’re all aiming for over the next couple of years.”
