Robbie Joseph

Leicestershire have extended the contract of pace bowler Robbie Joseph until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old former Kent seamer is the club's leading wicket-taker in the Championship with 17 victims so far.

He had match figures of 12-111 against Glamorgan, the best first-class debut performance by a Leicestershire bowler.

"We are all really pleased Robbie has agreed to stay with us as he's had an excellent start to the season," chief executive Mike Siddall said.

Antigua-born Joseph was initially signed until the end of May after Kent decided not to offer him a new contract.
