Warwickshire bowler Olly Stone will leave Edgbaston when his contract finishes at the end of the 2022 season to join Nottinghamshire.

The 28-year-old joined Warwickshire in 2016 and has played across all three formats, helping the squad to win the County Championship in 2021. 

Whilst at the Bears, Stone has earned international honours with England making his ODI debut in 2018 before going on to make his first Test appearance the following year.

In total, Stone has to date played in 55 matches across all formats for the Bears, taking 124 wickets.

Director of Cricket, Paul Farbrace said: “While it’s disappointing that Olly has made this decision, we of course respect it and wish him all the best for the future.

“We know our bowling attack is an area we need to strengthen, and we have already made some movements as we look to enhance the squad for 2023, in additional to the recent signings of all-rounders Ed Barnard and Moeen Ali.”

Stone said: “I will always be grateful for my time as a Bear. Being part of a Championship winning squad is something I will always remember, as was as taking part in Finals Day at our home ground in 2017.

“Edgbaston has been home for the last six years and during that time I’ve fulfilled the dream of representing England. Playing a Test at Edgbaston was a special highlight of my career and I want to thank everyone who has made my time as a Bear so special.”
