Former Leicestershire all-rounder Shiv Thakor has become the third player in as many days to sign a contract extension at Derbyshire.
Thakor made the switch to Derbyshire from Grace Road in September 2014 and was the Falcons’ top wicket-taker in both limited-overs competition in his first season at the club.
Elite performance director Graeme Welch said: “Shiv is another exciting young talent we have at the club, who has already shown the ability to positively impact games.
“He’s a versatile player who is constantly improving his game. He now has a big summer ahead to build on the experiences of 2015 and the hard work he has put in over the winter.”
Ex-England Under-19 international Thakor added: “I’m thrilled to sign a new deal at Derbyshire. Graeme and his coaching team have been great since I joined and I feel my game will only improve under them.
“I’m looking forward to what is a big year for the club and I hope I can consistently contribute towards positive team performances in all formats.”
