Australian seamer Michael Neser has signed a two-year contract extension deal with Glamorgan Cricket, ensuring his stay in the team until at least the end of the 2023 season.
Michael Neser joins compatriot Marnus Labuschagne, who would be in the Welsh County team for at least another year under his current contract.
Neser made his debut for the club this year and had a blockbuster start. In only four matches this year, Neser has taken 19 wickets at an average of 14.89. This also includes his 7 for 99 figure, which led Glamorgan to an easy victory over Lancashire at Cardiff.
The 31-year-old has featured 66 first-class games, taking 222 wickets. Furthermore, he has also scored over 2600 runs in the games at an average of 34.50.
On re-signing for Glamorgan, Neser said: “I’ve absolutely loved playing in Wales this season and it was a no brainer to commit my future to the club.
“When I was first approached by Glamorgan, Marnus said what a fantastic place this was and how welcoming the people were and that’s exactly how I’ve found it.
“Cardiff is a beautiful city, and I couldn’t think of anywhere better to play over the next two years.
“As a team, we’ve played some really good cricket this season and there’s plenty of young talent which bodes well for the future.
“Hopefully, I can bring my experience to the table to help them out and continue to contribute to more wins so we can push for silverware.”
Director of cricket, Mark Wallace, added: “Signing Michael on a new two-year deal is fantastic news for the club.
“He is a world-class cricketer and a real role model to our younger players who will only get better with him around the dressing room.
“Through him and Marnus re-signing over the last year, it shows that we are not only a very welcoming club but also a very ambitious one who can attract top players.”
Currently, Glamorgan occupies the fourth spot in Group Three of this year’s Championship. They will next play against Northamptonshire at Sophia Gardens in their final fixture starting July 11.
