Jeetan Patel has signed a new deal to be Warwickshire's overseas player in 2013.

The 32-year-old returned for his third season at Edgbaston in 2012 and played a key role in the Bears' success.

He took 51 wickets which helped him to secure a call-up to New Zealand's Test Match squad for their tour of India.

Patel will join up with the Warwickshire squad ahead of their defence of the LV County Championship, which begins at Edgbaston against Derbyshire on Wednesday 10th April 2013.
