A shoulder problem has kept the 34-year-old on the sidelines in 2020 but he is braced for another campaign at Trent Bridge

T20 Blast holders Nottinghamshire have secured Harry Gurney to a new white-ball contract.

The 34-year-old has penned a one-year deal with the Outlaws, extending his spell which began in 2012.

Gurney, who has made 237 outings across all formats for Notts, missed last year's run to Blast glory due to a shoulder injury but hopes to be fit and firing for the 2021 campaign.

"I was glued to the TV as the boys got over the line at Edgbaston – for me, they were clearly the best team in the competition," said Gurney, who has played 10 ODIs and two T20s for England.

"It was quite inspiring to watch them go about their business – and, if anything, it made me hungrier to come back and try to win it with them next year.

"2020 has ended up being a bit of an enforced sabbatical for me, but I feel rested, refreshed and ready to power through the next phase of my rehab to get ready for 2021."

Head coach Peter Moores added: "There’s no doubt that Harry improves any white-ball squad he’s part of – and, in many ways, that we were able to win the Blast without him this year owed a lot to the experience and knowledge players like him have instilled in the rest of the group."
