The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to secure the futures of Adil Rashid and Gary Ballance at Emerald Headingley.

Leg-spinner Rashid has signed a two year white ball contract, with batsman Ballance agreeing a three year extension to his current deal across all formats.

Rashid remains one of the hottest properties in world cricket, taking 232 wickets in T20 cricket and 65 in international T20 matches.

The 33-year-old, who is currently playing for Indian Premier League side Punjab Kings, will join up with England’s T20 World Cup squad following his spell in the competition.

Ballance, who averages 47.31 in First Class cricket, has finished the season on a high, with a sensational century at Hampshire followed by a half century against Warwickshire at Emerald Headingley.

The 31-year-old also had a strong finish to Yorkshire Vikings’ Vitality Blast campaign, notching another half century in the quarter-final against Sussex Sharks.

Martyn Moxon, The Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Director of Cricket said: “I am delighted that both players have committed their futures to the Club.

“Adil and Gary are very important players to the team and we look forward to them further contributing for years to come.

“Both players have been at Yorkshire for many years and have played in some of the most high-pressured matches in world cricket. Their experience and influence are hugely beneficial to the young squad that we are developing across all three competitions.”
