Rawlins speaks after signing contract extension

“Rawlins made his first-team debut for Sussex this year after a highly successful winter with the England Under-19s in India.

“The Bermuda-born 20-year-old played in three Championship matches, as well as the one-day and first class matches against South Africa and South Africa A, making 96 in the latter.

“All three players were part of the Sussex 2nd XI side that won the Second Eleven T20 earlier this season.”

Speaking after signing his contract extension, Rawlins said: “To get the security of having more time here is something that excites me. I can get my head down and try to push to get in the first team.”

Sussex’s Director of Cricket, Keith Greenfield added: “We’re very excited by Abi, Delray and Stuart’s continued development and their potential future impact on the future of Sussex Cricket.

“Congratulations to all three. We look forward to accompanying them on the next step of their cricketing journeys.”
