County Cricket: Felix Organ signs new contract in Hampshire
The 23-year-old Australian-born all-rounder has agreed to a contract for the next two seasons after enjoying his most successful season yet for the Ageas Bowl Club
Hampshire have secured a contract extension with all-rounder Felix Organ until 2024.
The 23-year-old, who was born in Sydney, had a contract until the end of last season but will now stay at the Ageas Bowl for another two summers.
Organ had a stellar 2022 campaign, scoring 866 runs across all formats for Hants.
Of those, 726 came into the county championship, making him the club’s third-highest run scorer behind James Vince and Nick Gubbins. He also took 16 wickets in all forms via his right arm off-breaks.

Organ, a product of the South Coast club’s academy who has played 55 times since debuting in 2017, is aiming for a silver medal next season.
“Playing for Hampshire has been my whole life so it means so much to me to be able to continue this journey,” he said.
“After an encouraging and successful season last year, we are now working to grow and develop even further to ensure even greater success for this great club. Hopefully we can win more trophies during this period and I can be a part of that.”

“It has been great to see his development through the academy and into the senior team and we are delighted that he will remain in the Ageas Bowl for some time to come.
“His game continues to evolve and we look forward to seeing him build on an encouraging 2022.”
