"I want to play my part in establishing Kent in the first division and challenging for trophies."

Kent director of cricket Paul Downton added: "Zak is a quick learner and, with his fantastic attitude and work ethic, I am certain he will become a better and better player for Kent and for England."

Crawley's highest Test score for England was when he made 66 against South Africa in January.
