Kent batsman Heino Kuhn received county cap 216 during the first interval of Kent’s Specsavers County Championship match.
The former South Africa batsman has scored more than 1,000 runs to date for Kent and his four centuries in five one-day matches is a record in English cricket and was instrumental in the Spitfires’ run to their first Lord’s final in a decade.
Director of cricket Paul Downton, who presented the cap on the outfield, said: “Heino has made a superb impact on and off the pitch.
“We research every signing we make and we received glowing references for Heino as a person and a cricketer.
“Everything we were told was accurate: he’s a terrific batsman, brilliant fielder and great team man who has brought a lot to the team environment as a leader and a role model for our younger players.”
