Profile

Heino Kuhn joined the exodus from South Africa into county cricket when he was told by Cricket South Africa that, at 33, he was unlikely to gain further opportunities at international level. He took a Kolpak deal with Kent and displayed an ambition that suggested his career was far from spent. He proved to be an inspired Kent signing as his will to win permeated the Kent dressing room in a 2018 summer where they won promotion to Division One for the first time in 11 years and were beaten finalists in the Royal London Cup. Kuhn missed out on a century in a consistent Championship season, but he was unstoppable in 50-over cricket as he struck four hundreds in five innings, all of them meticulously judged. In tears when he was out for 127 against Worcestershire in the semi-final because he had not quite guided Kent home, he was soon cheering victory.
