Boyd Rankin looks set to finish his career with Warwickshire after agreeing a three year-deal with The Bears today.

30 year-old Rankin, previously on the books of Middlesex and Derbyshire joined Warwickshire in 2008, helping the county to success in the CB40, County Championship and T20 competitions.

The former Bready man ended his career with Ireland following the T20 World Cup in 2012, making his Test debut against Australia in the 2013 Ashes.

While that episode ended poorly, Rankin has rejected Irish advances to return to the fold for te forthcoming World Cup, and may yet feature for England in the competition, having been named in the Lions squad.

Speaking after securing the deal, Warwickshire Director of Cricket Dougie Brown said: "Boyd's pace and bounce make him one of the most feared bowlers on the county circuit. At his best, he is a match for any batsman in the world," continued Brown.

"His form in the latter part of the season was key to our qualification for the One-Day Cup final at Lord's and claiming our first T20 Blast title at Edgbaston.
