Glamorgan have announced that allrounder Craig Meschede has commited his future to the club - signing a two-year extension - keeping him contracted to the county until the end of the 2020 season.

This summer Meschede featured in four County Championship fixtures, scoring 155 runs at 21.57 and taking nine wickets at 36.33.

In the Vitality Blast the allrounder hit 247 runs at 27.44 - including a career-best 77 not out against Gloucestershire - and picked up six wickets.

Meschede said: “In 2015 I felt as though Glamorgan was the right place for me to be playing cricket and I’ve loved every minute of my time here, so I’m delighted to sign a new contract.

“It was frustrating to miss the One-Day Cup through injury earlier in the season but I was pleased to be a part of the Vitality Blast campaign and challenge myself at the top of the order.

“Craig is a highly skilled cricketer who is a force in all three formats"

“I’m very settled here in Wales and feel as though we’re certainly building for the future with some of the players we have coming through and I can’t wait for the new season to begin.”

Hugh Morris, director of cricket, added: “It’s great news that Craig has extended his contract with Glamorgan.

“Craig is a highly skilled cricketer who is a force in all three formats of the game and has proven that he can be relied upon to perform under pressure.  

“We lost some key batsman at the top of the order during our Vitality Blast campaign and he really stepped up and produced with the bat when called upon at the top of the order, so we’re thrilled that he has decided to commit his future with the club.”
