Profile

Mitch Claydon, a burly seam bowler, has been a mainstay for Kent since he joined Kent on loan from Durham midway through the 2013 season, a move soon made permanent. He has rarely run through an opposition - his 5 for 42 against Worcestershire in 2016 represents his best for the county - but he has been a reliable figure in a county not short of budding seam bowlers struggling to make the grade. Claydon rarely grabs the headlines, but his economy in the later stages of a T20 innings has also been an important factor in Kent's side.
