Mitch Claydon awarded Kent cap

Kent paceman Mitch Claydon was awarded his county cap during the lunch interval on day three of the Specsavers County Championship against Worcestershire during the 165th Canterbury Cricket Week.

He was presented with cap number 213 by President Lady Kingsdown OBE and Chairman George Kennedy CBE at the impromptu ceremony as the players left the field on Friday afternoon.

Claydon is the club’s top Championship wicket-taker this season and has claimed 222* wickets in his Kent career to date.

The 33-year-old fast bowler joined Kent in 2013, initially on loan from Durham, and has passed 200 wickets in first-class cricket, 100 in List A matches as well as picking up 100 T20 victims.

County caps recognise players who have delivered consistent performance at first-team level.

The Club present numbered caps, Lord Harris received Number 1, and the numbers tell us the order in which they have been presented.
