    Barbadian pacer Fidel Edwards has extended his contract with English county club Hampshire by a year.

    Edwards will stay with the club until the end of the 2020 season.

    He joined Hampshire in 2015, picking up 45 first-class wickets in eight matches at an average of just 20.80 in his debut campaign.

    Edwards topped that in 2018, passing 50 first-class wickets in a season for the first time in his career as he picked up 54 scalps in 15 matches.

    This season he has taken 47 wickets at an average of just 23.55, including four five-wicket hauls, with three games remaining.

    Edwards says, “I’m very pleased to have signed for my sixth season at Hampshire, which has become my second home. Hopefully next year we can push on further and I’ll be trying my best to help make it a successful season for the club.”
