    by  • April 2, 2015 • Cricket

    England batsman Ian Bell has signed a new three-year contract extension with Warwickshire, that will keep him at the Edgbaston stadium until the end of the 2017 season.

    The 32-year-old, who made his county debut in 1999, has won two County Championship titles, B&H Cup, the Clydesdale Bank 40 and last season’s NatWest T20 Blast with the Bears.

    Bell told the club’s official website: “As a Warwickshire man through and through, I’m absolutely delighted to commit to this fantastic club for another three years.

    “I have many ambitions I’m still desperate to fulfil, both on a domestic and international level, and I look forward to hopefully achieving these over the coming years as a Bear.”

    The batsman has played 105 Test matches and 161 one-day internationals for England.

    Bell will leave with the England for the four test match tour of West Indies on Thursday, ahead of home series against New Zealand and Australia this summer.
