Yorkshire all-rounder Matthew Waite has already signed up a new one-year contract extension to keep him until this 2020 season’s conclusion with the team.

The 22-year-old has already established an injury-hit two seasons for the White Rose.

“I’m over the moon to register up a new thing. Hopefully I will push on from that which I’ve done within the previous couple of years,” he explained.

“I’ve experienced a taste of firstteam cricket and seem to get injured, so hopefully I can stay fit for the complete season and observe what happens.”

Waite, who won Yorkshire player of the season award in 2016, initially signed up a deal but has further expanded his time in Headingley.

He missed early stages of 2018 and also was ruled out after requiring ankle surgery.

“It was a terrible injury. I’ve had an injury and the physio knew what it had been I was immediately booked in for a surgery. I was able to get over that problem, but unfortunately I got another ankle injury this year along with the physios weren’t sure what it had been themselves as they had never seen it before,” he added.

“It had been quite infrequent. Obviously, it kept me out for the majority of summer time months, which was pretty tough, but thankfully those days are all behind me now.”
