Sussex all-rounder Chris Nash has extended his stay at the county for a further three seasons.

The 32-year-old, who has developed into a crucial performer at the top of the order in all three formats for the club, has signed an extension to his current contract to remain at the County Ground until the end of the 2018 season.

It continues a long association with Sussex for Cuckfield-born Nash, who made his debut for the club in 2002 and has gone on to play over 150 first-class matches and 228 limited-overs matches for his local side.

Nash has scored over 9,000 first-class runs, with his highest score of 184 coming against Leicestershire in 2010. He made 866 first-class runs last season.

He is also closing in on 3,000 runs in List A cricket for Sussex, and 2,500 runs for the Sharks in the T20 format. His off-spin has also yielded 151 wickets across all formats.

Nash said: "It's a really exciting time to commit my future to the club. It is nice to know that I'm going to be here at least until I'm 35. This is my home club, I've played here since the age of seven and to commit now is a great thing for me.

"It's an exciting time with Luke Wright taking over as captain. I'm looking forward to playing under him and hopefully over the next three years I can really hit my best form.

"My aim is to score heavily in all forms and to win trophies. I still dream of playing for my country, and this, alongside winning trophies for Sussex, is what drives me to keep improving."

Sussex head coach Mark Davis said: "He is an integral part of the squad in all forms of the game and has a significant role to play in the coming years.

"Aside from his immense ability, he is a senior player at the club and his influence and leadership in the dressing room is vital to our future success."
