Worcestershire CCC’s prolific batsman, Jake Libby, has a signed contract extension until the end of the 2024 season.

Libby had 12 months remaining of the three-year deal he signed after moving from Nottinghamshire at the end of the 2019 campaign.

But now the 28-year-old has committed himself to Worcestershire for at least the next three years until the end of the 2024 season.

Libby has been in superb form and a model of consistency in all formats of the game since arriving at New Road and has been appointed red ball vice-captain after making a positive contribution on and off the pitch.

He said: "It’s been an excellent move for me coming to Worcestershire, and I was always really keen to stay and will hopefully continue to get better.

"For me, to sign for another three years is really exciting. I’m looking forward to it.

"Personally, since joining, it has gone well in all three formats, and I think we are making progress as a team as well.

"I think we can challenge for trophies and push ourselves to be where we want to be in the coming years.

"This group can go onto compete, in whatever format, as a Division One club as that’s how I see the next three or four years."
