Essex's Ryan ten Doeschate appeals for a wicket against Glamorgan

ESSEX duo Ryan ten Doeschate and Owais Shah have both signed new contracts with the county.

The two players will be heading to the Indian Premier League in early April to play for their respective teams before returning to Essex to play domestic cricket for the county.

Ten Doeschate has penned a new two-year extension to his current contract which will keep him at Essex until the end of the 2014 season.

It has been a busy winter for ten Doeschate, playing for Otago and Chittagong Kings before playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL.

The 32-year-old will be playing his tenth season for Essex this year and head coach Paul Grayson hopes he will have a big impact on the club’s targets this season.

Grayson said: “I’m delighted he committed to the club and has been a brilliant player over the seven-eight years he has been here and I’m looking forward to him contributing to the team in the next few years.”

Ten Doeschate said, “I’m really happy to have signed a new contract at the club. I’ve always wanted to play cricket at the county and I’m hungry to do well at Essex, starting this season. I have been quiet recently and I now feel I am in a position to do well for the club and looking forward to helping the club to success this season.”

Shah has signed a one-year contract which begins at the end of his 2013 Indian Premier League tournament with Rajasthan Royals, until the end of the forthcoming season. The 2013 season will be his third year at Essex since joining from Middlesex in 2010.

Grayson said: “I am very pleased that Owais has signed for a year as he’s a high quality player who will give us great experience when he returns from the IPL tournament.”
