Profile

Darren Stevens was already one of the great evergreen performers of the county circuit, but 2019 turned out to be one of the most pivotal seasons of his career - at the age of 43. After being informed that Kent would not renew his contract, Stevens struck a career-best 237 off 225 balls and took seven wickets - including 5 for 20 in the second innings - against Yorkshire in the penultimate game of the year, prompting the club to immediately re-open negotiations. Having scored 88 and taken 10 wickets for the match against Nottinghamshire the previous week, Stevens ultimately walked away with a one-year deal to play a 16th season for Kent in 2020.
