Warwickshire have announced that Laurie Evans, Oliver Hannon-Dalby and Richard Jones have all signed contract extensions ahead of the 2015 season.

Dougie Brown, Director of Cricket for Warwickshire CCC, said: “We’re at a crucial time in the season where we’re competing for honours in all three competitions, so having Laurie, Oliver and Richard commit their immediate futures to Warwickshire is excellent news.

“All three players have made important, match-winning contributions to the team this season and we hope that there are many more outstanding performances to come from them in the future.”

The Bears will be competing on T20 Finals Day at Edgbaston on Saturday, and the announcement has come at an excellent time, with Evans, a key figure in the Blast side, securing his position on the staff ahead of the county calendar's showpiece event.

Finisher

Evans, 26, has held the role of a finisher in the one-day teams for the Bears this season, and has enjoyed great success in the T20 side. 

His 222 runs have come at an average of 31.57 and a strike-rate of 143.5, the highest of a recognized batsman in the side.

He also recently hit a remarkable 43 not out off just 15 balls against Surrey in the Royal London One-Day Cup, a knock which included 5 fours and 3 sixes.

He has signed on until the end of the 2017 season.

Swing

Right-arm seamer Oliver Hannon-Dalby has held his spot down in all three formats this season, and at 25 has started to develop into the first-choice swing bowler that Warwickshire need.

He has had a good deal of success in the recent Championship fixture against Somerset, scoring 40, which doubled his highest first-class score, as well as taking 2-38 in the hosts' first innings, which has now earned him a two-year extension.

Squad Player 

Richard Jones has not been a first-choice member of the Warwickshire side this season after joining from Worcestershire.

Despite being sent out on loan to Leicestershire and only managing three Championship appearances thus far, he has re-signed for the 2015 season.
