Player Biography

Shirt Partner: Robert Maylam

Much is expected of Daniel, a dashing right-hand opening batsman, and he will be looking to push on.

After making a name for himself on the international scene with the England Under-19s, the former Millfield School pupil was widely heralded as a star of the future when he won Wisden Schools Cricketer of the Year in 2011.

Daniel has become a regular in Kent’s four-day side after initially making his breakthrough at number three and is now a regular opener in all formats.

The Lewisham-born batsman has showed his power in the shorter forms for the Spitfires.

Bell-Drummond made national headlines by smashing a scintillating century for Kent against Australia in the build-up to the 2015 Investec Ashes series.

He received county cap 210 at Canterbury Week 2015 alongside England wicketkeeper-batsman Sam Billings.

2016 was a landmark year for DBD as he improved his best score in each format.

He started the season in style, recording 206 not out against Loughborough MCCU in a first class match at The Spitfire Ground.

Daniel has been a regular in the England Lions squad in recent years, scoring a one-day career-best 171 not out at Canterbury against Sri Lanka A.

He also improved his best T20 score in the same season, scoring 112 not out as Kent Spitfires defeated oldest rivals Surrey at Tunbridge Wells.

Bell-Drummond shared a world record T20 opening stand with Joe Denly as the pair put on 207 against Essex at Chelmsford in July 2017.
