“He’s impressed in the Second XI and has taken the opportunities given to him in the first team and done well. That’s a really important attitude to have and we look forward to seeing his progression over the next two years.”

Dal added: “I’ve had a good season and I’m pleased to have contributed to the team, particularly with runs in four-day cricket.

“I am still young, so it’s good for me to be able to work with the coaches every day to improve my game and challenge for a place in the first-team.”
