Wicketkeeper Alex Mellor and pace bowler George Panayi will be released by Warwickshire when their contracts expire at the end of the season.

Mellor, 28, has made nine first-class appearances for the Bears since joining in 2015, while 21-year-old Panayi came through the club's academy.

Warwickshire sport director Paul Farbrace said: "It's always sad when we have to release players.

"I would thank (them) for everything that they have given to the club."
