Derbyshire wicketkeeper-batsman Harvey Hosein has signed a new two-year deal to keep him at the 3aaa County Ground until 2020.
Hosein has scored 1,259 runs in 31 first-class matches since making his debut for the club back in 2014, with one hundred and nine fifties to his name.
Dave Houghton, head of cricket, said: “Harvey is a talented young wicketkeeper-batsman who we feel has a bright future ahead.
“Already in his young career he has shown the qualities of a top cricketer who can win games and we now want to give him the confidence of our full backing.
“We see Harvey as our long-term wicketkeeper-batsman and we look forward to watching him continue his progression.”
Hosein becomes the first piece of business completed by Houghton, who took over the reins as head coach on Monday after a stint as batting coach with Middlesex.
Hosein stated: “I’m excited to sign a new contract at Derbyshire, a club I have been with since I was very young.
“In my chats with Dave [Houghton], it’s been nice to hear that he has full confidence in me and my ability and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
The 2018 season saw 22-year-old Hosein score 376 County Championship runs at 26.86, taking 12 catches and one stumping.
