Seam bowler Jack Brooks has signed a new contract with Yorkshire, tying him to last season’s county champions until December 2017.

The 30-year-old was the White Rose’s leading wicket-taker in Championship cricket last year, with 68 wickets at an average of 28, with his form leading to a call-up to the England Lions for their tour of South Africa.

Brooks, who joined the county from Northamptonshire in 2012 was delighted with the extension.

“I am thrilled to have signed a new contract with Yorkshire,” he told the club’s website.

“I am enjoying my cricket and have had a brilliant 18 months with the club.

“There is a great vibe around the place and I am confident with the quality of players we have here, we can continue to be force in game.

“It would be fantastic to repeat our efforts from last season and give it a real good push to retain our title in the County Championship.”
