England international Alex Hales is keen to repay Nottinghamshire's faith in him after signing a new two-year white-ball contract with the county.
The 30-year-old missed the start of the summer and was omitted from England's World Cup squad after serving a suspension for recreational drug use.
However, having agreed a deal which will take his stay at Nottinghamshire to 14 seasons, the hard-hitting batsman wants to give something back.
"Notts is like home to me now. I couldn't really envisage playing anywhere else," he said.
"After a tough start to the summer, everyone at the club has been brilliant with me.
"I want to repay the faith they have shown and that will continue to be my aim for at least the next two years."
Director of cricket Mick Newell said Hales' abilities in one-day cricket - he has scored 6,415 runs at a combined average of 34.34 - meant retaining him was key.
"Alex is a highly sought-after white-ball cricketer right across the world," he said.
"He has delivered a number of match-winning performances for us down the years and we're looking for that to continue.
"His commitment to Notts since returning to our dressing room has been exactly what we said it needed to be."
