Sheffield Shield - WA v SA: Day 3

Rising star Lance Morris has confirmed his future in the BBL, re-signing with the Perth Scorchers for at least another two seasons.

One of Australia's fastest bowlers, Morris is currently in the Australian squad which is touring India for the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

He was also part of the wider Test squad during the home summer against the West Indies and South Africa, and is noted as a potential option to represent the nation in all three formats in the future.

Morris, who took nine wickets this BBL season despite only being available for a handful of games, said he was excited to remain at the Scorchers.

"We've got great coaches, staff and players, and it's a pretty exciting time to be part of the organisation," he said in a statement.

"I'm definitely striving to improve with the white ball and looking for any opportunity to better myself."

Morris missed the final of the BBL after flying out to India with the Australian squad, but his nine wickets in five games saw him become a crucial part of the side.

The Scorchers have already recently re-signed AJ Tye and young gun Cooper Connolly, while only a handful of players - including Cameron Bancroft, Cameron Green and Jason Behrendorff are out of contract.

Morris said the crowd in Perth was another key reason behind his extension.

"We overcame a fair bit of adversity with some draftees not being available and people dropping in and out, but our squad as a whole was really strong, so it was good to see a bit of success," he said.

"Fifty-thousand people at Optus Stadium is always going to be something that's pretty exciting. We're lucky to have such a loyal supporter base; we're playing really nice cricket at the moment, and it's good to see people turning out in droves."

Australian multi-format players are not expected to be available for much of the next BBL campaign, with the ODI World Cup in India delaying the start of the home summer, which is immediately followed by a tour of New Zealand which will stretch into the middle of March.
