Former Proteas fast bowler Duanne Olivier is one of seven Yorkshire players to sign a new contract with the club ahead of this year's County Championship.

Olivier featured in 10 Tests and two ODIs before ending his fledgling Proteas career in 2019 to sign a Kolpak deal with Yorkshire.

He will now be one of the county's overseas players with Olivier's new deal to go on until at least the end of the 2022 season.

"Since joining the club I've been made to feel very welcome and am looking forward to playing my part in this side," said the 28-year-old Olivier.

"I've enjoyed my time in England so far and believe there's a lot more to come from me in the next few years.

"We have a really strong squad who I believe can challenge for silverware and I'm really excited to be apart of this."

Fellow fast bowler Ben Coad - along with batsman Will Fraine and wicketkeeper Jonny Tattersall - has committed to the county until the end of the 2023 campaign.

Batsman Harry Brook and fast bowling all-rounder Matthew Fisher have put pen to paper on deals that run to October 2024.
