Broad extends Nottinghamshire deal
England paceman Stuart Broad has signed a three-year extension to his county contract with Nottinghamshire.
The 27-year-old is centrally contracted to the England and Wales Cricket Board and spends most of his time on international duty, but the new deal pledges his county allegiance to Notts until 2016 and will kick in full-time should he lose his place in the England squad.
Broad said: "It's been a massive year for me. It started with winning The Ashes, and ended with bringing home the Yorkshire Bank 40 trophy to Nottingham.
"I'm really looking forward to the next three years and bringing more success to Trent Bridge."
Broad signed for Notts from Leicestershire in 2008 and has taken 78 wickets, including 15 in three games this summer.
Nottinghamshire's director of cricket, Mick Newell, said: "Stuart is an excellent player and asset to this club.
"To have someone of his quality available to us at certain points in the season gives us an extra edge, and he was influential in securing the Yorkshire Bank 40 trophy for us at Lord's."
Broad took three for 29 as his side hammered Glamorgan by 87 runs in September 21's 40-over final.
