Nottinghamshire wicketkeeper Tom Moores has signed a new deal at Trent Bridge keeping him at the club until 2024.
Making his debut in 2016, the left hander has become a mainstay behind the stumps for the Outlaws after taking over from club legend Chris Read after his retirement in 2017.
Since then Moores has scored over 3000 runs and claimed over 200 dismissals in all formats for the Green and Golds.
The Notts academy graduate was awarded his county cap earlier this season and is the son of Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores.
“After being capped recently, it’s great news to commit to the club for another three years, especially with the exciting season we’ve got going at the moment,” said Moores
“I’m still massively ambitious across all formats. I do love playing white-ball cricket, it’s exciting and fast-paced, but I’ve been quite pleased with how I’ve done this year in the red-ball too, which is just as important to me.
“I know as well as anyone that I’ve still got room to improve. I’ve never been one to put a ceiling on myself, having always just thought ‘work hard’, and I set my goals very high.”
The southpaw has developed a reputation as one of the most destructive batsmen on the circuit and also has 36 dismissals this year in first class cricket, more than any other player.
Notts director of cricket Mick Newell expects Moores to improve even more in the coming years.
“Tom continues to mature as a cricketer and he is now one of the senior players in the dressing room across all formats,” said Newell.
“The fact he sits top of the charts for dismissals this summer in the County Championship shows the commitment he has put into improving his glovework.
“With the bat he has shown he can adapt to the situation in red- and white-ball cricket and I’m excited to see him further develop his skills in the years to come.”
Moores is currently involved in the Outlaws T20 Blast campaign, where he starred with a 40 ball 48 in the Outlaws tie at Lancashire on Sunday.
He has also been involved in short format franchise cricket around the world, with spells at Multan Sultans of the Pakistan Super League’s, the Jaffna Stallions of the Lanka Premier League and the Bangla Tigers in the Abu Dhabi T10 league.
