Hampshire paceman Fidel Edwards has signed a new one-year contract extension with the Division One club.

The 37-year-old, who played 55 Tests and 50 ODIs for West Indies, has been with the county since 2015.

"Fidel has been fantastic for us. He's an important part of our squad and a great character [within] the group," said director of cricket Giles White.

Edwards added: "Hampshire has become my second home. Hopefully next year we can push on further."

Edwards, who appears for Hampshire as a non-overseas player under the Kolpak ruling, had a loan spell with Birmingham in the T20 Blast earlier this season.
