Jofra Archer signs two-year contract extension with Sussex

Jofra Archer has signed a two-year contract extension with Sussex CCC, it was announced by the club.

The extension will keep Archer with Sussex at least till the end of 2022 season.

With Archer breaking into the national set-up, the 24-year-old rarely has time to turn out for his county. His outstanding performances at the club earned him an England call-up ahead of the World Cup last year.

The Barbados born quick also bowled in the Super Over of the World Cup final and held his nerve to power England to their first-ever World Cup win.

"Sussex gave me my opportunity right at the beginning of my career, so I am very happy to commit long term to the club," Archer said as quoted by Sussex CCC.

"I really do enjoy playing with everyone here at Sussex and it was really nice to come back down last year to play a few games with the lads.

"It's the same club that I left it as and it's nice to know nothing has changed.

"Sometimes people sit in my space in the dressing room now, but that's fine!"

Sussex head coach Jason Gillespie said the club was delighted that Archer will continue to don the Sussex strip.

"We're delighted that Jofra will continue to be with us at Sussex," he said.

"I'm really looking forward to having him play for us when his England commitments allows.

"He loves playing for Sussex -– he's like a kid in a candy store!

"Hopefully we can play a role in helping him continue to get better," added the former Aussie quick.

Since making his debut for Sussex in July 2016, Archer has stormed to 196 wickets in 97 appearances across all formats of the game.
