Sussex's all-time leading T20 wicket-taker Will Beer has put pen to paper on a new contract with Sussex.

Having made his debut in 2008, Beer has made 174 appearances for the county across all three formats and has taken 183 wickets, 84 of which have come in T20 cricket.

He took seven wickets during the 2018 Vitality Blast, including two in the quarter-final against Durham and two in the final as the Sharks finished as runners-up to the Worcestershire Rapids.

Beer said: "I am really thrilled and excited to be signing a new contract for the club.

“I have never been as excited to be a Sussex player as I am now and this is testament to the environment that has been created over the past year.

“Last year was a great stepping stone to hopefully an even better season in 2019 and hopefully we can reward the Sussex faithful with a trophy or two."

Sussex head coach Jason Gillespie said: "It’s great to have Beero re-sign with the club.

“Although opportunities were a bit limited for him last year with injury and the make-up of the side, his attitude around the team was outstanding and when he did play, he stepped up and did a fine job."
