Derbyshire’s longtime South African striker Wayne Madsen has signed a new two-year contract, aged 38.
This would bring the prolific Durban-born right-hander’s time with the club to 16.
Madsen had his second-best season in county cricket in 2022, making 1,273 league runs in Division Two averaging 60.61.
This took his Premier Class run total for Derbyshire to 12,817, completed in 190 Premier Class games and placing him 14th on the county’s all-time list.
With 3,573 runs in T20 cricket, in which he is Derbyshire’s top scorer, and another 3,142 in List A, his combined tally of 19,496 puts him third on the county’s all-time scorers list.
His 100 not knocked out against Durham in the T20 Blast in 2022 also made him the third Derbyshire player to score a century in all three formats of the game, after Greg Smith and Wes Durston.
Madsen spent four seasons as Derbyshire captain, from 2012 to 2015, during which he skipped the team to the Division Two title in his first season in charge.
