James Tredwell named new Kent County Cricket Club captain
James Tredwell has been named as the new Kent County
Cricket Club captain in succession to Rob Key.
The 30-year-old said it was a great honour to become
captain considering the rich tradition of the club and their
previous great players and captains.
"Having come through the Kent system, it is with great pride I
take on this challenge," he said.
"I would like to pass on my best wishes to Rob. Being under
his leadership on a personal note has taken my game forward and
he's been a pleasure to play for.
"To fill his shoes will be a tough job as he performed the role
admirably for a number of years, and tactically was in my opinion
second to none.
"I see this opportunity as the next step in my career, and am
really excited with the chance to tackle this challenge."
The left-handed batsman and right-arm off break bowler made his
first-class debut for Kent during the 2001 season, going on to be a
key member of the side in all forms of the game.
Tredwell is Kent born and bred and has taken nearly 550 wickets
for the county in all forms of the game since his debut. He has
played one Test and nine one-day internationals, as well as
captaining England Lions.
