Mark Davies believes Kent’s new three-pronged bowling attack will continue to go from strength to strength.
Davies (pictured) and fellow new-ball quick bowler Charlie Shreck have settled in well since signing during the winter and together with firebrand quick man, Matt Coles, the trio have formed a dynamic bowling attack in helping Kent to an unbeaten start to the season.
Coles already has 17 scalps to his name from three LV= County Championship games and while the 21-year-old has been earning rave reviews for his displays with bat and ball, Davies has been quietly going about his business.
The former Durham man bowled 44 overs in the draw against Gloucestershire, which included 25 in the first innings where he went on to take 4-43, offering control with the new and old ball for skipper Rob Key.
Davies is enjoying being part of a new-look attack at Kent and believes the trio each offer something different to the bowling unit.
"We’ve bowled through pre-season together and Jimmy (Adams) is quite big on us bowling as a unit," he said. "The fact we bowled as a unit helped us against Gloucester because they never got away from us.
"I think we are heading in the right direction, there’s still a lot to work on but we’ll keep moving forward.
"We have got Colesy, who is young and a bit wild really, who comes in and chucks them down as fast as he can but we complement each other as Charlie has the swing option and I just sit in there and bash a good area for as long as I can. It seems to be working and long may it continue."
