Kartik and Malan have impressed for Middlesex this season

Middlesex have re-signed India bowler Murali Kartik and highly-rated young left-handed batsman Dawid Malan.

Kartik, 30, will stay at Lord's for a third season in 2009, while 21-year-old Malan has agreed a new long-term deal.

Middlesex chief executive Vinny Codrington said: "Dawid is a star of the future and one to watch, and Kartik has been a great overseas signing.

"I'm sure he will continue to bring experience, intelligence and motivation to our predominantly young squad."

Kartik has formed an impressive spin partnership with Shaun Udal this season which was a key part of Middlesex's Twenty20 success.

He said: "I am looking forward to the Stanford Super Series and the Champions League and bringing more success next year."

"With the potential and youth talent at the club we can look forward to exciting times."

Malan caught the attention with an unbeaten 103 against Lancashire in the Twenty20 Cup quarter-final after Middlesex had been 21-4.

He had attracted interest from other counties, but has now opted to stay at Lord's.
