Alex Wakely: Northamptonshire batsman signs new deal until 2021


Alex Wakely was captain at Northants for six years

Northamptonshire batsman Alex Wakely has signed a new contract until the end of the 2021 season.

The 31-year-old has spent 12 seasons with the club and was captain until he stepped down from the role in June.

Wakely is Northants’ longest-serving player and skippered them to victory in the T20 Blast finals in 2013 and 2016.

“I’m very proud of what I have achieved as captain but I want to prove to myself that I can score the runs I should do as batsman,” he said.
