The Sydney Sixers have received a boost ahead of this week’s Big Bash final against the Perth Scorchers, with star batsman Jordan Silk signing a three-year deal to remain at the franchise until the 2017/18 season.
Silk is currently the tournaments third-highest run scorer behind Kevin Pietersen and Michael Klinger, hitting nine sixes and 16 fours along the way.
The 22-year-old have averaged 67.25 with the bat and shown his prowess in the field, taking some memorable catches during the competition.
Silk said he was delighted to re-sign with the BBL04 finalists.
“It’s exciting to have the security of knowing what lies in the future, and what better place to be really,” he said in a club statement.
“I’ve loved my time over the last couple of seasons at the Sixers and can’t wait to continue at the club.
“Everyone involved with the Sixers; coaching staff, support staff, players and everyone around the side have become like a family to me, and I can’t be thankful enough for the opportunity I’ve been given up here.
“Special mention must go to (Head Coach) Trevor Bayliss for actually giving me a run in the team at first and backing me to the hilt.”
Sydney Sixers general manager Dominic Remond said Silk was rewarded for a breakout season.
“We are very excited about securing Jordan’s services for the next few years,” said Remond.
“He has had a breakout season with the bat and is brilliant in the field, taking arguably the best two catches of BBL03 and BBL04. Most importantly, he is an outstanding young man who fits in perfectly with the culture of the Sixers.”
