"Our success over the last 12 month is testament to contributions from the whole team and we look forward to that continuing in the exciting season ahead," she added.

Bell-Drummond was named the winner of the development award, which fellow Kent and England Under-19 player Adam Ball was also nominated for.

Bell-Drummond’s award capped a superb year for the Kent batsman who first played for England Under-19s as a 16-year-old and is now England’s all-time highest run-scorer in one-day internationals at Under-19 level.

He said "I'm delighted to have been named England Development Programme Cricketer of the Year, it's a real honour to have been given this award and hopefully it is the beginning of things to come for me."
