New Zealand fast bowler Matt Henry will return to Kent for the upcoming English summer. The county has signed him for the first seven Championship games for its Division 1 campaign, starting against Lancashire at Old Trafford on April 12.
Henry earlier played for Kent in 2018, when he picked 75 wickets in 11 matches and helped the side earn a promotion from Division 2. He couldn’t be signed in 2019 as he was busy with New Zealand’s World Cup campaign.
During his previous stint with the club, Henry picked figures of 7 for 45 at Durham before his current best first-class figures of 7-42 against Northamptonshire at Canterbury. He was named Kent’s Bowler of the Year at the end of that season.
Kent has already re-signed Fred Klaassen, Grant Stewart, and Alex Blake this month.
