Extending his stay: Samit Patel

Nottinghamshire stalwart Samit Patel will take his playing career into a third decade after agreeing a contract extension that runs until the end of the 2020 season.

The 33-year-old all-rounder came through the club’s academy and has gone on to amass more than 11,500 runs in first-class matches and in excess of 10,000 in the limited-overs formats since making his first-team debut in 2002.

Patel, who has played six Tests, 36 one-day and 18 Twenty20 internationals for England, was integral in Nottinghamshire’s white-ball double and Specsavers County Championship promotion last year.

And the club’s all-time leading run-scorer and wicket-taker in Twenty20s said: “I thoroughly enjoy playing at my home county of Notts, so I’m thrilled to have extended my stay here for another two years.

“When I made my debut for the club in 2002, I would have never expected to have been playing here all these years later, but it’s a great privilege to play at a ground like Trent Bridge.

“The club has had some significant successes in my time here, not least last season, and hopefully there are more to come this season and beyond.”

Sealing the future of the middle-order batsman and slow left-arm bowler was of paramount importance to Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores.

“It’s a really good move for everybody. I think Samit loves the club and we love Samit, so it’s a great fit,” Moores said.

“He’s played some fantastic cricket over the last 18 months, so to secure his services now for the next couple of years makes real sense.

“It’s a credit to Samit because he has moved his game on and played really well under pressure, certainly in one-day cricket, taking us home a lot of times in run chases and playing some crucial innings, and he’s always been very valuable with the ball.”
