Matt Henry to return to Kent for final County Championship games

New Zealand fast-bowler Matt Henry will return to Kent for the final five Specsavers County Championship matches.

The 26-year-old was at the club for the first half of the season and took 49 wickets in six championship games at an average of 13.4.

He is still the leading wicket-taker in red ball cricket across the country this season despite not having played in the last two fixtures.

Henry was also instrumental in helping Kent to the final of the Royal London One-Day Cup claiming 14 victims along the way.

The club currently sit third in the County Championship after eight matches and look to push towards promotion.

Henry will be available for the final five games starting with Derbyshire away, home matches with Northants and Gloucestershire as well as trips to Middlesex and Warwickshire in the run-in.

Henry told the club's website said: “I had a great time at Kent for the first part of the summer and I really enjoyed being part of the side.

“We played some great cricket and got ourselves to a Lord’s final and close to the top of the table in the Championship.

“The lads are doing great in the Vitality Blast and I’m lucky enough to be coming back for the last five games.

“It would be great to finish the summer off well and get ourselves into a promotion spot. These games tie in really well for my preparations for the summer back home and will get me game ready for the cricket to come.”
