James Vince celebrated his new four year Hampshire deal with a second half-century in four days as Sydney Sixers thrashed league leaders Hobart Hurricanes by nine wickets.

The England batsman, who signed a new four-year deal with Hampshire yesterday, followed up his match-winning 46-ball 75 against Brisbane Heat on Sunday with 74 not out from 50 balls at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Vince shared an unbroken stand of 167 with 21-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Josh Philippe, whose 86 not out from 49 deliveries ushered the Sixers to their 173-run victory target with 17 balls to spare.

Vince made 28 and six in his first two games for the Sixers, who are second in the table behind the Hobart Hurricanes.

In between his highest BBL scores, Vince signed a new four-year deal committing himself to the county until at least the end of the 2022 season.

The 27-year-old has made 347 appearances in all formats for Hampshire since his debut in 2009, said: “I’m delighted to have signed a new contract here at Hampshire and look forward to all the challenges that lie ahead.

“We made some great progress as a group last year and I’m looking forward to playing my part in what I hope is going to be a very successful period for us in the coming years.

“We have a great set-up and fantastic facilities here and I’m very proud to be able to call Hampshire my home.”

Vince, whose made the last of his 26 England appearances in a Test series against New Zealand in March 2018, has captained the county for the last three seasons and was a key figure in Hampshire’s Royal London One-Day Cup success last June.

Hampshire director of cricket Giles White said: “James has played a huge part in the side and he has an enormous amount to offer so we are obviously delighted that he has committed to the club for the foreseeable future.

“James is the type of player that can turn a game on its head and has the rare ability to do so in any form of the game.

“He’s tasted international cricket and experienced leading a young Hampshire side to success in a Lord’s final.

“As an academy graduate and captain of the club we are proud of what he has achieved and equally excited by what his future may hold.”
