Edwards will be back for his fifth season with the south coast club and will be available for the whole of the County Championship campaign
Hampshire will have Fidel Edwards in their ranks again in 2019 after the seamer signed a one-year contract extension at the Ageas Bowl.
Edwards will return for his fifth season with the south coast club and will be available for the whole of the County Championship campaign.
The former West Indies international enjoyed a prolific 2018, claiming 54 first-class wickets at an average of 26.72.
"It’s great to have Fidel back with us again next season. He’s been an important part of the squad since joining us in 2015 and he had an excellent season for us last year, finishing with more than 50 wickets in red-ball cricket," director of cricket Giles White said.
"His pace adds variety and offers something different to our attack and he’s a very popular player within the group – having him around for 2019 is another real positive for us."
