All-rounder Cameron Delport has extended his white-ball contract with Leicestershire until the end of the 2019 season, the county have announced.
The 28-year-old South African scored 243 runs at an average of 34.71 during Leicestershire’s Royal London One-Day Cup campaign and also contributed with bat and ball as they beat Lancashire in their opening T20 Blast fixture last weekend.
“We are really excited that Cameron has signed an extension to his contract,” head coach Pierre de Bruyn said in a statement.
“He has been a match-winner for us with the bat in both the 50-over and T20 format, offers us a good option with the ball, and is also a fine fielder.”
Next up for Delport and his team-mates is a trip to New Road this evening to play Worcestershire in the T20 Blast.
