Ben Harmison has revealed he has signed a two-year contract extension with Kent - despite averaging only 20 with the bat last season.
The 26-year-old, pictured, came under fire in his first season at St Lawrence but he is determined to win the Kent supporters around.
"Hopefully something will click and I can be a big player for the club," said Harmison, who left Durham last winter to link up with Kent.
"They have given me another two years and want to keep the core strength of the squad together.
"Jimmy Adams (Kent coach) knows my strengths and I have a good attitude. I will be looking for a little break next season, to score runs and take wickets."
Harmison’s form saw him left out of the side after a poor run in which he made only 325 runs in 12 innings.
Reflecting on being dropped, Harmison added: "I am a big lad and can take it, knowing there are other lads in the squad looking to push you out.
"It was a frustrating time for me because I had a good pre-season and perhaps I peaked too early. It was a new role batting at three, where before I had played as the all-rounder, going in at six."
