Profile

Darren Stevens' acquittal in February 2014 on a charge of failing to report a corrupt approach allowed him to put to bed an anxious winter and focus on continuing to be the all round mainstay of the Kent side. He swept the board at the 2013 Player of the Year event: best player, best, bowler, and best batsman. In his ninth season since moving from Leicester he scored over a thousand first class runs at 63, including 205 not out against Lancashire in September. Although he is regarded as a batting all-rounder he nevertheless gathered 32 wickets in the County Championship. No Kent player scored more runs in T20 cricket, and he needed only 44 balls to score a century against Sussex in the YB40.
