Profile

One of three Durham exiles in the Kent squad, Ben Harmison has gradually asserted his value to the squad as a batting allrounder. He scored his first two centuries for Kent in 2013 in separate fixtures against Gloucestershire, and totalled 712 runs at an average of 44 in first class cricket as well as cementing a place in the middle order in one-day cricket. Harmison only took one Championship wicket at considerable cost in 2013 and did not bowl at all in limited-overs formats, but he upped his bowling returns slightly in 2014 as he strove to be recognised as a genuine allrounder.
