Luke Wood extends Lancashire stay until 2024

Luke Wood extends Lancashire stay until 2024

Luke Wood has signed a new contract with Lancashire Cricket until the end of the 2024 season.

The bowling all-rounder joined Lancashire ahead of the 2020 season on a three-year contract from Nottinghamshire and made his First-Class debut for the Club at Durham in the Bob Willis Trophy.

26-year-old Wood has since established himself as a regular fixture in Lancashire’s red and white ball squads; bowling regular hostile left-arm fast spells and making useful contributions with bat.

Wood has featured in 21 T20 matches since arriving at the Club – taking 20 wickets – whilst he has also taken 21 First-Class wickets in 12 appearances.

Last season, Wood also struck his maiden First-Class century for the Red Rose away at Kent as he and Danny Lamb set a new county record eight wicket partnership of 187.

In the 2021 Vitality Blast, Wood claimed career best T20 bowling figures of four for 20 - against Roses rivals Yorkshire Vikings - to help set up a victory which took Lancashire Lightning into the quarter-final stages.

Speaking after signing a contract to remain at Emirates Old Trafford for at least the next three seasons, Luke Wood said: “I came here at the end of 2019 looking to get myself into the side and playing regularly, so to be able to commit for another three years is great.

“We have a great bunch of lads here; I feel as though I am fully integrated into the team now and it has been good to make a number of contributions over the last couple of seasons.

“The Club came close bringing silverware back to Emirates Old Trafford last summer and we have all been working hard during the winter – and out here in Dubai on pre-season – to try and go that one step further in 2022.”
