Profile

Another Durham exile in Kent, Ben Harmison 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.
