England batsman Michael Carberry has signed a three-year extension with Hampshire, which will keep him at the Ageas Bowl till the end of the 2017 county season.
Carberry moved to Hampshire from Kent in 2006 and quickly established himself as one of their most prolific batsmen.
“It’s taken some time but I’m pleased it’s now done and dusted,” Carberry said. “I can now just concentrate on doing well for the club for the next three years and hopefully we can be successful.
“If we can secure promotion this year in the County Championship that would be great, it would be nice to play Division One cricket again soon and hopefully I can continue to do well for the club by scoring some runs.
“Hopefully, we can win some more silverware before I finish all together and I’m looking forward to the next three years.”
Hampshire’s director of cricket, Giles White, added: “As well as being an extremely popular figure at Hampshire, Michael is a proven match winner and senior player that leads by example. It is great to have him around and playing his part in what promises to be an exciting period for the club.”
