Profile

Mitch Claydon joined Kent on loan from Durham midway through the 2013 season and immediately made an impact with the ball. He was recalled by Durham in September for their final game to help them secure the County Championship, but had already signed a contract for a permanent transfer to Kent. During his short, temporary spell with the county he excelled particularly in T20 cricket, taking five wickets against the touring New Zealanders and thirteen more in the county competition.
