Hosein signs two-year contract
Wicketkeeper-batsman Harvey Hosein has signed a two-year deal to keep him at the Club until the end of the 2020 season.
The Cricket Derbyshire Academy in partnership with the University of Derby graduate has scored 1,259 first-class runs, with a top score of 108, since his four-day debut in 2014.
The 22-year-old averages 29.97 with the bat in Specsavers County Championship cricket, with one century and nine half-centuries, and he has claimed 75 catches behind the stumps.
He has also appeared in four List A matches and five Twenty20 games for Derbyshire.
Head of Cricket, Dave Houghton said: “Harvey is a talented young wicketkeeper-batsman who we feel has a bright future ahead.
“Already in his young career he has shown the qualities of a top cricketer who can win games and we now want to give him the confidence of our full backing.
“We see Harvey as our long-term wicketkeeper-batsman and we look forward to watching him continue his progression.”
Hosein added: “I’m excited to sign a new contract at Derbyshire, a Club I have been with since I was very young.
“In my chats with Dave [Houghton], it’s been nice to hear that he has full confidence in me and my ability and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
