Miles Hammond will stay at Gloucestershire until 2020
Gloucestershire have tied Miles Hammond to a two-year contract extension.
The batsman, who scored 474 first-class runs in 2018, including two centuries, will now remain with the county until the end of the 2020 English summer.
Hammond, 25, had not played first-team cricket for three years when he was returned to the XI but he marked his comeback with a century against Sussex at Cheltenham.
He also made an impact at the top of the order for the West Country side in the T20 Blast.
On extending his stay, Hammond said: "I’m really excited to have signed for two more years with Gloucestershire and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in next season and enjoying some more winning moments next year with a really exciting squad."
Head coach Richard Dawson said: "It is great news that Miles has extended his contract at the club.
"It was a breakthrough year for Miles, making instant impact in the T20 competition and also scoring two centuries in four day cricket. We look forward to working with Miles and continuing his development over the next couple of years."
