Kent give Daniel Bell-Drummond contract extension

Daniel Bell-Drummond has signed a three-year contract extension with Kent.

It will see the 25-year-old remain at the club until the end of the 2021 season.

Bell-Drummond made his Kent debut in 2011 and was awarded his county cap in 2015. Since then, he has scored nearly 5,000 first class runs at 32.16 and averages 41.51 in List A cricket.

He has struggled in red ball cricket for the last two seasons, however, and has not scored a Championship hundred since 2016 and scored fewer than 1000 runs in that time.

Bell-Drummond said: “It’s a great time to be a Kent Cricketer at the moment.

“Our strong performances this season across all three formats show that we have a squad that can achieve great things.

“I’m delighted to commit to Kent Cricket for three more seasons as we collectively make big strides forward on and off the field.”

Kent’s director of cricket, Paul Downton, said: “I am delighted ‘DBD’ has committed himself to Kent Cricket for the foreseeable future. We are in the process of building a squad that will compete in all formats and Daniel is an integral part of our plans.

“He has had an outstanding white ball season, and I’m also confident he can thrive in Division 1 of the County Championship next season and regain the form that led him to England Lions selection a couple of years ago.”
