Worcestershire have announced the return of Australian batsman Callum Ferguson as their overseas player for the 2019 season.

The 33-year-old right-hander has enjoyed a fine limited-overs spell at New Road this season, hitting three centuries.

Ferguson, who has played one Test, 30 one-day internationals and three Twenty20s for Australia, will play all three formats next season and be available from May 1.

Worcestershire head coach Kevin Sharp told the club's official website: "He has fitted in superbly here so it was a no-brainer really to have him come back here for a longer period next season.

"Callum was keen to come back and the very fact he is going to be with us for most of the season gives us that stabilising factor as well.

"He has played a lot of cricket and his stats are good - this is going to be to our benefit.

"He has a good record in all formats of the game, he has loved it here, and he has a great relationship with everyone at the club."
