The 26-year-old spent three weeks with the England Performance Squad in South Africa last winter and is held in high regard by his county.

His commitment to Gloucestershire comes during a week which has seen both batsman William Porterfield and pace bowler Gemaal Hussain leave the County Ground.

Gloucestershire director of cricket John Bracewell said: "Our tactics this summer were primarily formed around our pace attack, but Vikram showed on occasions that he can be a match-winner in his own right.

"Given that some of our seam bowlers have moved on, he will play a more important role next season and becomes one of our more senior players."

Banerjee, himself, said: "I am delighted to have signed for another year and I am looking forward to the challenges of next season. I want to win games for the team and help us win trophies and promotion."
