Michael Burgess signs new Sussex deal

The 23-year-old had recently signed a deal keeping him at Hove until the end of the 2018 campaign, but a strong end to the season - including a career-best first-class score of 146 against Nottinghamshire - prompted the south coast outfit to offer a further extension.

Burgess said: "I'm delighted to have extended my time here at Sussex until the end of the 2019 season.

"It's an exciting time to be a part of this club and I'm looking forward to what the next couple of years hold."
