Sussex batsman Luke Wells has extended his contract with the club, and will now remain at Hove until the end of the 2019 season.

The 26-year-old left-hander was the top scorer in Division Two of the County Championship last season, with 1,292 runs at an average of 64.60.

"We have a lot of work to do over the next two years and beyond to get back to winning ways," he said.

"I'm hoping to continue leading from the front as a senior player."

Eastbourne-born Wells, the son of former Sussex captain Alan Wells, has scored 6,489 runs in 107 first-class appearances for the club since making his debut in 2010.
