Somerset captain Tom Abell has signed a contract extension to keep him at the county for the next three seasons.
Abell was already committed until the end of the 2021 campaign but both parties have agreed to add an extra year.
The 25-year-old Taunton native has skippered the side for the past two seasons and lifted the Royal London One-Day Cup after Somerset defeated Hampshire at Lord's in May.
He has now set his sights on becoming the man to end Somerset's long wait for a first Specsavers County Championship title after losing out to Essex by just 11 points in 2019.
"I'm absolutely over the moon to have signed this extension and I couldn't be happier. Ultimately, it's about winning and the reason I've signed is because I want to win things here," he told the official website.
"It's no secret that this is my home club and I'm very passionate about Somerset cricket and I firmly believe that with the squad we have and the people behind the scenes, we can continue to win things.
"Lifting the Royal London One-Day Cup this year was incredible but by no means have we finished there.
"Having won that competition, we were desperate to win the championship. It didn't quite happen, but our sights are firmly set on going one better next year.
"The club means absolutely everything to me. It's my life and I try to give absolutely everything that I can for Somerset Cricket, and it hurts when that's not quite enough and we don't come out on the right side of the result.
"To me, this place is my extended family. A lot gets made of the support that we get and rightly so. Having the support that we get is incredible."
