Kent batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond signs new contract until 2023

Kent batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond has put pen to paper on a new deal until the end of the 2023 season.

The 27-year-old opener has been with Kent since 2010 and enjoyed an excellent T20 Blast campaign last summer - scoring more than 400 runs for the Spitfires.

He also took over captain duties when Sam Billings was on international duty.

Bell-Drummond said: “I have been playing for Kent in some shape or form for 20 years now, and it’s an extremely exciting time to be a part of this talented Kent squad.

“The decision to extend my stay at my home county was an easy one – everyone in the dressing room knows that with more hard work and dedication, silverware isn’t a far-off prospect for us.”

Kent director of cricket Paul Downton said: “Daniel has been an integral part of Kent Cricket’s first team for 10 years now, despite only being 27 years of age.

“He is a hugely talented batsman who was our leading run-scorer in the Championship in 2019 and the country’s leading run-scorer in the Vitality Blast in 2020.

“We are delighted that DBD has committed himself to the club on a long-term contract as we look ahead to the 2021 season.”

Bell-Drummond joins Jordan Cox and Ollie Robinson who have also signed new deals to keep them at Kent until 2023 in the past month.
