Over the course of his career, he has earned England caps in all three formats, winning the 2019 Cricket World Cup, as well as contracts in The Hundred, Bangladesh Premier League, and Pakistan Super League.

Commenting on his new contract, Dawson said: "I'm delighted – it's always great when you sign a new contract.

"I've been at Hampshire since I was 10 years old and, having come through the age groups, I can use my experience to help others make the step up into first XI cricket.

"We've tasted a lot of success – including last year's Vitality Blast – and I'm hungry to bring even more silverware to the Ageas Bowl."

Director of cricket, Giles White, added: "Liam has grown up here and has shown a genuine desire to win trophies for this club.

"He's an intelligent player with the ability to influence games across the formats with both bat and ball.

"We are delighted he has agreed to extend his stay and we hope to see him in a Hampshire shirt for years to come."
