Delray Rawlins extends contract with Sussex

Staying put: Delray Rawlins has signed a contract extension with Sussex

Delray Rawlins has signed a contract extension with Sussex Cricket Club.

The Bermuda all-rounder played a vital role in the Sussex Sharks reaching the semi-finals of this year’s Royal London Cup, achieving List A career-bests with the bat and ball.

The 25-year-old smashed 91 from just 62 balls against Gloucestershire and finished with figures of three for 50, which he went on to better in the following game against Leicestershire when he took three for 22.

Rawlins has been at Sussex since he was a teenager and is looking forward to continuing his journey with the club.

“Obviously I have been here my entire professional career and I am looking forward to building on the good things we did this summer,” he said.

“This year I worked on certain aspects of my game, and I am pleased with the progress made so hopefully I can go again next year and produce bigger numbers for the team.”

Having made his first-team debut five years ago in 2017, Rawlins is an established member of the Sussex squad and has relished the additional responsibility across all three formats of the game.

“I’m enjoying my role within the squad, even though I am only 25 the additional responsibility has helped my game, so long may it continue,” he added.

Sussex performed poorly in the LV= Insurance County Championship this season, finishing seventh of the eight teams in second division, and co-head coach Ian Salisbury has left his position after a non-cricketing dispute with a player.
