Sussex batsman Chris Nash has signed a one-year extension with the county, keeping him at Hove until the end of the 2014 season.

There were some reports that Nash was on his way out of Sussex and that Surrey were keen to secure his services.

The 28 year-old had an excellent season for Sussex in 2010, as he passed 1,900 runs in all formats of the game. Nash also contributes with the ball in providing his captain with a useful off-spinning option.

It was in last year’s CB40 trophy, were Nash excelled. He scored 649 runs at the top of the order with an average of just over 72. Nash is a thinking cricketer and Sussex’s cricket manager Mark Robinson will be delighted that Nash has put pen to paper.

Nash made his debut for Sussex in 2002, and since then has forced his way into being an integral part of the side. He was called up to the England Lions squad only last season, and represented them in three one-day matches against Sri Lanka A in August.
