The new deal will keep the England allrounder with the county until the end of the 2021 summer
Ben Stokes has signed a three-year contract extension with Durham.
The new deal will keep the England allrounder with the county until the end of the 2021 summer.
“I love playing for Durham and am delighted to be signing a new long-term deal at the county where I learned my trade,” Stokes said.
“I’m very passionate about helping Durham compete at the top level and if I am given any opportunities to play this season, I will give everything to the club.
“It’s an exciting time at Durham, especially with the rebrand of the club this winter and having a new coach, chief executive and director of cricket in charge.”
Stokes made his debut for the county in 2009. He has since gone on to play in 52 Tests for his country.
