Warwickshire extend Pollock deal

16th May 2018, 15:29 by Neil Foster

Young Warwickshire batsman Ed Pollock has extended his contract by two years with the West Midlanders.

The 22-year-old has yet to make his first-class debut for the Edgbaston outfit but made his Twenty20 bow in last season's T20 Blast.

The High Wycombe-born starlet scored a creditable 283 runs at an average of 31.44 in nine games for the Bears in the 2017 edition of the tournament and is expected to feature once again when the competition starts later this summer.

He is highly-regarded at the club and will now remain on the books until the end of the 2020 campaign, with Director of Sport Ashley Giles excited by the prospect of Pollock plying his trade for the county.

"Ed's arrival in our T20 team created a wave of excitement," said the former England spinner. "He's got a huge future ahead of him, with the potential to play for Warwickshire, Birmingham Bears and England for many years."

The 2018 T20 Blast runs from July 4 to September 15, with the Bears looking to go one better after finishing as runners-up last term.
