England all-rounder Chris Woakes is among three players to have signed contract extensions with Warwickshire.

Birmingham-born Woakes, 27, has been with the club his whole career and will now stay at Edgbaston until at least the end of the 2019 season.

He has played six Tests, 43 One-Day internationals and eight Twenty20 internationals since January 2011.

Wicketkeeper Tim Ambrose, 33, and England Lions fast bowler Chris Wright, 30, have also signed deals, until 2018.

Woakes has been on Warwickshire’s book since playing for the club’s Under-10s side and Bears director of cricket Dougie Brown is delighted to have secured him on a longer deal.

“Woakesy is a proud Bear and has been one of the leading all-rounders in the country for several years,” Brown told the club’s website.
