Wayne White, Matthew Boyce and Nadeem Malik have signed new contracts at Leicestershire.
All-rounder White enjoyed a fine season in 2011, scoring 789 first-class runs in addition to 38 wickets at an average of 30, and he has signed a new two-year deal.
Seam bowler Malik, who spent the end of the season out injured, and batsman Boyce who starred as a sub in the Friends Life t20 final win, have inked one-year contracts.
"When you look at the figures, you can see that Wayne had a very good season and we feel he has the potential to be an exceptional all-rounder. He is a big player in our side," said Leicestershire coach Phil Whitticase.
"Matthew and Nadeem both had steady seasons and offer us valuable experience. Nadeem is a fantastic bowler and Matthew has continued to improve with two first-class hundreds this year."
The trio follow in the footsteps of spinners Claude Henderson and Jigar Naik, who both signed new contracts earlier in September.
