Sussex Cricket is delighted to announce that Tymal Mills has extended his T20 contract with the club.

Since joining the club in 2015, the left-arm fast bowler has played 60 T20 matches for Sussex. The 28-year-old’s 75 wickets for the Sharks make him Sussex’s fourth highest wicket-taker in T20 cricket. Three more dismissals will take Tymal into second place, behind only Will Beer.

Tymal is the Sharks’ joint top wicket-taker in this year’s Vitality Blast, level on 11 with David Wiese.

After extending his time at Sussex, Tymal said: “I’m really pleased to sign this extension. I’m currently in my seventh year down at Sussex and it’s a great place to play cricket and a great place to live. We’re in the hunt for the Blast trophy again this year with a quarter final to look forward to after The Hundred finishes. Hopefully we can sustain this level of success over the next few years.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Kirts in his first year as Head Coach after developing a good relationship while he was bowling coach and Wrighty is a great captain who trusts me to do my job out in the middle. I’m looking forward to continuing playing for them both over the next couple of years.

“We’ve got a lot of young guys coming through at the club and I enjoy working with the young bowlers. They’re keen to learn and improve and I’ll always be on hand to help them when I can so that when they get their chance in the first-team they’re ready and confident to play our brand of brave, aggressive T20 cricket.”

Sussex’s T20 Head Coach, James Kirtley added: “It's no secret how important Tymal is to our T20 team so I am delighted he will be with Sussex for the next 2 years.

“He regularly bowls the tough overs and more often than not delivers at crucial moments. He has committed fully to the T20 team this year and his improvement in his batting and fielding has been great to see. His performances this year have fully deserved the attention of England and I personally feel he has more to offer at the top level.

“On a personal level, I really enjoy working with Tymal. He is a fine individual who has a hugely positive influence on our dressing room.”
