Derbyshire’s Anuj Dal has signed a new one-year contract with the county.
“2021 was a difficult season,” he said. “But, with Mickey arriving soon, it’s a really exciting time, hopefully we can kick on as a squad and start challenging on the field again.”
Derbyshire failed to win a single game during the opening 10-match County Championship segment of last season.
Their first win came against Sussex to help them avoid finishing bottom of Division Three – but they finished second bottom in their T20 Blast group – and bottom in their One-Day Cup group.
But Dal joins Tom Wood, Alex Hughes, Mattie McKiernan, George Scrimshaw and Sam Conners in signing a new deal.
Arthur is due to join Derbyshire at the end of Sri Lanka’s current two-match Test series with West Indies in Galle. They are currently on day three in the second Test, which finishes on Friday.
