England all-rounder Ben Stokes is hoping to kick on with Durham after penning a three-year contract extension. The England international has spent his entire domestic career with Durham after making his debut in 2009.
Stokes’ rise to the top was nothing short of impressive as he earned his senior debut for England just two years later, having gone on to make 52 Test appearances. His future with Durham is also secure after penning an extension, which runs until 2021, on Friday, something he claims was an easy decision.

Stoke told Durham’s official website: “I love playing for Durham and am delighted to be signing a new long-term deal where I learnt my trade.
“I’m very passionate about helping Durham compete at the top level and, if I am given any opportunities to play this season, I will give everything to the club.
“It’s an exciting time at Durham, especially with the rebrand of the club this winter and having a new coach, chief executive and sporting director in charge.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
