George Garton has agreed a multi-year contract extension at Sussex.

The announcement comes as he prepares for his IPL debut, off the back of a good all-round showing in the Vitality Blast Finals Day defeat to Kent.

Garton took two top-order wickets for a run-a-ball 24 and top-scored for the Sharks with 41.

The Brighton-born all-rounder said: “I’m delighted to have extended my contract with my boyhood club and am very excited for what the next few years will bring.

“I want to say a thank you to Sals [Ian Salisbury] and Kirts [James Kirtley]. They’ve been brilliant with me and the rest of the team over the last year and a bit in what’s been a challenging time. Also a big ‘thank you’ to Ash Wright as batting coach who has really helped progress and develop my game.”
