Beer handed Sussex extension

One-day specialist Will Beer has signed a new one-year contract with Sussex.

Now 29, the leg-spinner has played for the county since the age of 10, making his first-team debut for the county as a teenager in 2008.

"I am really happy to be signing another contract at my home club," Beer said.

"From a personal and team perspective, I am looking forward to kicking on from last season and hopefully bringing success and silverware back to Hove."

Keith Greenfield, Sussex's director of cricket, added: "It's great that Will has signed for a further year. We look forward to him continuing to push for a place in all competitions going forward."

Beer has been an influential player in Twenty20 cricket for the Sharks and was a member of the club's champion team of 2009, but he has struggled to hold down a place in first-class cricket.

However, last season he took four wickets in the County Championship win over Leicestershire at Arundel after impressing with his career-best figures of six for 29 against South Africa A on the same ground.

Beer has played just 14 first-class matches to date, while he is one short one completing a century of T20 appearances.

Meanwhile, England are 7/2 to win the 2019 World Cup on home soil and are available at 11/2 to triumph at the 2020 ICC World Twenty20.
