Yorkshire skipper Gary Ballance has committed his long-term future by singing a new two years contract with the English county.

The 27-year-old will now stay at Headingley Stadium until the end of the 2019 season.
“I’m obviously delighted to sign an extension. I’ve been at Yorkshire for such a long time now and it’s the only place I want to be. So it’s great to get an extension signed before the season starts and now I can just focus on playing cricket,” the Zimbabwean born English cricketer told the club website.
Ballance has played 21 Tests for England, the last of them coming against Bangladesh in October.
