Sussex reward Naveed
Left-arm seamer Naveed Arif Gondal has extended his stay with Sussex by signing a new one-year contract.
The Pakistan-born 30-year-old, who joined Sussex in February, claimed 15 wickets in four LV= County Championship matches and hit an unbeaten century against champions Lancashire in April.
Naveed also made 16 limited-overs appearances for the county and has recently been plying his trade for Sialkot Stallions in Pakistan's domestic Twenty20 tournament. He will link up with Michael Yardy's side for the Caribbean T20 in the New Year.
Naveed said: “I want to say thank you to Sussex for keeping faith in me. I know I have so much more to give the team in 2012 and I aim to establish myself as a regular.
“I enjoyed my first year but I have to show the consistent form to be selected to play in all forms all the time, which I will do.”
Sussex’s professional cricket manager Mark Robinson said: “I'm delighted that Naveed has agreed to come back for another year. Despite his age, he is still in many ways inexperienced. He is still learning and has got lots more to give.”
