Sussex allrounder Chris Nash has signed an extension to his current contract, which will keep him at Hove until the end of the 2013 season.

Nash, 27, made his county debut in 2002 and has scored 4,734 first-class runs at 38.48 since then as well as being a useful bowling option in limited-overs cricket. Sussex were promoted to First Division after winning the Second Division last season and Nash is relishing the prospect of competing in the top-flight again.

"I am delighted to have extended my contract," he said. "Next season is going to be a very exciting one back in Division One. We are working very hard to make sure we can challenge for all three trophies."

Nash made a career-best 184 against Leicestershire in July and finished the 2010 season with over 1000 Championship runs at 41.16. "On a personal level, I would like to replicate my 2010 Championship form, whilst also building on my one-day and Twenty20 form from the past two seasons."

Sussex captain Michael Yardy echoed the sentiment and called on him to keep improving over the next few years. "I'm really pleased that Chris has re-signed," said Yardy. "He is a fantastic team man and is maturing into an outstanding player. Hopefully he'll be pushing for higher honours within the game in the next couple of years."

It is a shame we have not seen Nash at national level when at his prime. He could have been a very useful player for England. Huge positive for Sussex though.
