In a significant development, ace England pacer Tymal Mills has extended his T20 contract with the Sussex County Cricket Club. As a result, the experienced speedster will remain with the Sharks until at least the end of the 2024 season. 

Here's how Mills reacted to the signing

"I’m really pleased to have signed a contract extension that will take me through to my 10th season at the club. Although I only play T20 I see myself as a full time Sussex player, I live in Hove, I’m raising my children here and there’s nowhere else I see myself playing cricket,

"I’m really excited for the immediate future working with and playing under Paul Farbrace from the chats I’ve had with him so far and the speed at which this contract extension was offered and delivered makes me feel valued at the club moving forward."

Meanwhile, Sussex bowling coach James Kirtley welcomed Mills and said, 

"I am delighted that Tymal has signed an extension to his contract with us. He was part of the world cup winning squad and I have heard so much good stuff about the way in which he went about things at the world cup, it just shows the professionalism of the man."

Regarded as a death-overs specialist, Mills has a plethora of experience in the shortest format, scalping 198 wickets in 172 T20 appearances. 

The 30-year-old finished the T20 Blast 2022 as the highest wicket-taker for Sussex, claiming 15 wickets at a fabulous strike rate of 13.4 in nine outings.
