County cricket veteran Darren Stevens will return to Claremont Cricket Club for the second half of the 2019-20 Western Province Cricket Association premier league.

Stevens was with Claremont Cricket Club for the 2018-19 WPCA premier league. He scored 516 runs and took 15 wickets in 17 matches.

The 43-year-old all-rounder was prolific toward the end of Kent’s 2019 County Championship Division One campaign. He took 10 wickets against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge and struck a double-century against Yorkshire at Headingley in Birmingham.

The 237 spanned a mere 225 deliveries – and featured 28 fours and nine sixes.

“I feel I still have a lot to bring. I feel great at the minute. I love playing for Kent. I’m really pleased to commit myself to another year at this great county. I feel I have a lot to give to the team on and off the pitch and I’m excited for the year ahead,” said Stevens, who was recently afforded a one-year contract extension at Kent.

Claremont Cricket Club currently occupy fourth position in the 2019-20 WPCA premier league, after five wins in nine matches. They are coached by former Barbados cricketer Allison Johnson, who has been named in the West Indies’ provisional squad for the Over-50 World Cup in South Africa later this year.
