Graeme Hick has been offered a new one-year contract by Worcestershire.

Hick, 40, who has been with the county for 23 seasons, had been pondering his future after a poor start to the season, but he hit good form in June and has not looked back since. Recently he became only the second player since the war to score 100 first-class hundreds for his county (the other being Geoff Boycott).

"Graeme is a legend of Worcestershire cricket and is having another good season," Mark Newton, the Worcestershire chief executive, explained. "I can confirm we recently discussed the situation with him and would love to see him continue to re-write the record books here at Worcestershire. The offer has been made and Graeme has asked for time to consider the situation."
