Sussex hatch Hatchett deal

Emerging left-arm seamer Lewis Hatchett has signed a one-year deal to keep him at Sussex until the end of next season.

The 23-year-old signed a three-year contract with the club in 2010, the year he made his first-class and LV= County Championship debuts for Sussex. In 2013, he broke into the one-day set-up for the first time as he made his bow in both List A and Twenty20 cricket.

He also impressed in the tour match against the Australians at the BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground as he claimed top-order scalps in both innings.

Hatchett said: "I'm delighted to have signed a new contract with my home county. I felt I made plenty of progress last season, particularly with breaking into the one-day teams and playing more white-ball cricket.

"I look forward to pushing for a place in all three formats of the game and helping Sussex to be successful."

Sussex professional cricket manager Mark Robinson said: "Lewis showed real signs of progress last year and we hope with another good winter behind him he will really start to impact in all forms of the game next season."
