The 23-year-old also scored 210 runs across both formats, including an unbeaten 54* against Hampshire in the Bob Willis Trophy and a match-winning 34* against Middlesex in the Blast.

Tom Haines also showcased the bright future he has throughout the first-class season, and scored a memorable century against Surrey in the final Bob Willis Trophy match of the summer.

His fabulous 117* took the 21-year-old’s season total to 249 runs and his career total to 832, while with the ball, Haines took two wickets across the campaign.

Rawlins was another Sussex youngster to impress with both bat and ball this summer, scoring 460 runs and taking 11 wickets across both formats.

The 23-year-old’s highest first-class score was 65 and came against Surrey, while the Bermudian’s best Blast showing came against Kent Spitfires, which saw Rawlins take career-best T20 figures of 3-21 and hit a vital 62*.

Performance Director, Keith Greenfield said: “George has had a fantastic summer and is showing the match-winning capabilities we all know he has.

“Tom and Delray again have both shown the talent and potential they have, and were given more support and match time to add the consistency to make regular match-winning contributions for the club.

“We’re delighted that George, Tom and Delray have extended their stays with Sussex.”
