Fast bowler Tymal Mills has extended his Twenty20 contract with Sussex.

The 27-year-old, who has played four T20 internationals for England, featured seven times in the T20 Blast last season, taking seven wickets.

The left-arm seamer's campaign was curtailed by a back injury before the Sharks were knocked out of the competition at the quarter-final stage.

Mills is Sussex's seventh-highest T20 wicket-taker of all time, with 53 scalps in 44 appearances.

The Hove side have not disclosed the length of his new deal.

"As a left-arm seamer with raw pace he brings a real point of difference to our T20 side," Sussex head coach Jason Gillespie said.

"He missed a few games this year with injury but Tymal works incredibly hard to keep himself fit and strong and to get himself on the park."
