Gloucestershire batsman Chris Dent has signed a new deal which keeps him with the County Championship Division Two club until the end of the 2018 season.
Dent has scored over 6,000 runs in 162 appearances for the county in all forms of the game.
The 25-year-old hit a career-best 268 as Gloucestershire drew with Glamorgan in their final game of the 2015 season.
"Having been here quite a while I need to step up and be one of the main players," he told the club website.
"I am a senior player now and I need to take on that sort of role.
"Last year I didn't have a stand-out season in white ball cricket so hopefully I can improve on that and keep going well in the red ball stuff."
