Sky Bet

England batsman Jonny Bairstow is among five Yorkshire players who have signed contract extensions with the county.

Bairstow extended his stay at Headingley by signing a deal until the end of 2015, along with fellow batsman Gary Ballance and seamer Steve Patterson.

Off-spinner Azeem Rafiq and pace bowler Moin Ashraf have signed one-year extensions until the end of the 2014 season.

Yorkshire Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon told the club's website: "We are delighted that all five players have signed contract extensions.

"They have all come through the Yorkshire system and have established themselves in the team.

"In Jonny's (Bairstow) case he is firmly part of the England programme and that is testament to his efforts in his development as a cricketer.

"These lads can become cornerstones of the side for a number of years and along with the other players we have on long-term deals. That is very exciting for Yorkshire cricket."
