Michael Hogan: Closing in on 100 wickets for the season

Michael Hogan has extended his Glamorgan contract until 2016 after a stellar first season in county cricket.

The Australian seam bowler, who has a British passport and is registered as a Kolpak player, joined Glamorgan from Western Australia earlier this year.

Hogan's impact has been huge, his 61 Championship scalps making him the Championship's leading wicket-taker, and with 30 limited-overs victims he is on course to top 100 wickets for the season.

He said: "I'm really pleased to extend my contract with Glamorgan. My family and I have really enjoyed living in Wales and I have been able to put some performances on the board.

"I hope to improve my game again next year because the first season is always a learning curve in a new environment.

"I'm looking forward to tomorrow's match and spending the next few years here at Glamorgan."

Chief executive Hugh Morris said: "Michael's contribution with the ball this season has been outstanding, and his figures clearly show what a good player he is.

"We're determined to develop our young Welsh cricketers, but equally important is the need to retain the best players we already have."
