"I am delighted to commit my future to Essex County Cricket Club," he said.

"Since returning to Essex, I have been fortunate enough to experience success and I am keen, as we all are, to continue putting trophies in the cabinet."

"After the retirement of James Foster, it is now time for Adam to make the position his own and highlight to everyone what a valuable performer he can be."
