Sale excited after agreeing fresh Somerset terms
Ollie Sale says he is looking forward to another season with Somerset after signing a one-year contract extension.
Fast bowler Sale picked up a back injury over the winter, which hampered his progress, but he impressed with the ball and his captaincy during this season's Second XI games to give a reminder of his talents.
The 23-year-old, who graduated from Somerset's Academy in 2014 and made his First XI debut in a T20 match in 2016, has now been rewarded with a contract extension that runs until the end of the 2020 campaign.
"I absolutely love playing here and we've got a really exciting group of players at the moment. Everyone in the changing room is really close and it's great to be a part of that for another year," Sale told the club's official website.
"It's an exciting time for the club. Players are getting called up for England, there's a trophy in the bank already with a second one hopefully coming our way at the end of the year. Hopefully, we can continue that success next season."
Somerset have already landed the Royal London One-Day Cup this season and are in line to win Division One of the County Championship for the first time, which they lead by eight points from Essex.
