The 38-year-old has had another impressive campaign, averaging 38.55 in the Specsavers County Championship, with his Essex side finishing third in Division One behind Surrey and Somerset.

The Dutchman joined Essex back in 2003 and has become a popular figure with both his team-mates and the fans at The Cloudfm County Ground.

In 2016, his first season as club captain, ten Doeschate led Essex to the Division Two title and promotion to the top flight.

A year later, he and his team defied all the odds to clinch a first County Championship title for 25 years with an unbeaten record, with ten Doeschate playing a vital part of it.

Ten Doeschate is delighted to sign an extension and said: “My affinity for Essex just grows stronger and I’m really pleased with the way the team is developing and the direction the club is taking.

“We’re continually striving to improve and I’m looking forward to the challenges we’ll face, and I feel I can still offer value to this team.”

Head coach Anthony McGrath is also pleased to see ten Doeschate prolong his stay and added: “Tendo is a massive player for us, both on the field and in the dressing room, and I’m delighted he’s staying for another season.

“He’s a natural leader and has led this team to some fantastic triumphs in recent years and hopefully there will be more to come.”
