Essex have been granted permission to keep the Kent batsman, Neil Dexter, on loan for another month.
The 23-year-old Dexter initially moved to Chelmsford in early June, ahead of the Twenty20 Cup. He will now remain at there up to and including the Pro40 match against Surrey on August 5.
"Firstly I would like to thank Kent for letting us have Neil for another month," the first-team coach, Paul Grayson, told essexcricket.org.uk. "We want to have a further look at Neil because we believe he is a talented player. We look forward to him making a good contribution over the next few weeks."
