Darren Stevens, the legendary all-rounder in English domestic cricket is all set to leave his beloved county side Kent by the end of this summer. He has played for Kent for 18 years and his exit was as outstanding as his career. he helped Kent lift the Royal London One Day Cup beating Lancashire in the final.
Speaking about some of his fondest memories with the club, he vividly remembers his 205 not out against Lancashire in 2013 which ended Lancashire’s unbeaten run as Kent chased down 418 to win by two wickets.
Stevens received a guard of honour from the Kent players, ahead of a special presentation for him. Not only that, a "Stevo Day" celebratory book had been placed inside the Kent Cricket shop for members and supporters to write down their favourite Stevens memories.
The club announced the retirement of the no. 3 jersey in honour of the talismanic all-rounder's contributions. This happened at a special presentation which took place during the lunch of day two of their County Championship Division 1 match with Somerset on Tuesday, their last match this season.
