Essex captain Ryan ten Doeschate has signed a new one-year deal.

The 39-year-old Dutchman, who has been with the club since 2003, helped them win the County Championship and T20 Blast in 2019.

"I'm really pleased to extend my contract at the club and my affinity for Essex and the players just grows stronger and stronger," he told the club website.

"I'm excited about the challenges and battles we'll face in 2020."

Ten Doeschate handed over captaincy duties in the T20 in 2019, but remains county captain in red ball cricket.
