Klusener: staying with Norhants

Northamptonshire have extended the contracts of South African all-rounders Lance Klusener and Johan van der Wath.

Klusener has signed for an additional one year, while van der Wath has committed to Wantage Road for another two years.

Head coach David Capel said: "A player with the experience and attitude of Lance Klusener is a great example to the dressing room and strengthens the teams in all areas.

"Looking forward to the future beyond 2008 Lance will help bring on the developing players at Northants and is a great example to the maturing all rounders that we currently have within the squad.

"Our ethos here is to develop younger players for the future while remaining competitive in all competitions over the forthcoming years.

"We see Lance and Johan as very important parts of that vision and are confident that we are developing a squad to take this club forward for many years to come."
