Pace bowler Amjad Khan has been released by Sussex as part of cost-cutting measures by the club after his 2013 season, his final year of a three-year contract, was severely disrupted by injury.

Khan, 33, who was capped once by England at Test level, against West Indies in Trinidad in 2009, joined Sussex in 2010 after starting his career with Kent. He took 61 wickets at 29.88 for Sussex, taking his first-class tally to 347 wickets 31.62.

He suffered a broken wrist last season which required surgery and he was limited to a handful of Second XI appearances.

"My departure is an amicable one and I look forward to seeing my friends and former colleagues be successful in the future," he said. "I'd like to thank all the players and the staff at Sussex, who have helped make the last three years so enjoyable."

Mark Robinson, the Sussex cricket manager, said, "Amjad will be sorely missed by everyone at the club. He's been a matchwinner for us in all formats and set great examples to our younger bowlers. He has been unlucky with his wrist injury sustained in the final year of his contract and we wish him all the best for the future."
