Darren Stevens: BPL is closest I’ve got to international cricket

Friday 13th November 2015

Kent all-rounder Darren Stevens is looking forward to returning to play in the Bangladesh Premier League.

The 39-year-old, who has a benefit year in 2016, said: "They love cricket. It's just an amazing place to play cricket. I had a great time over there and played two tournaments, won both. I was vice-captain in the second tournament.

"How can you not love playing in front of 45,000 people every second night of the week? To win it was an amazing experience to play with some of the best players Twenty20 cricket has ever seen.

"I've never played international cricket and it's the closest I'll get to it. I'm really looking forward to it."

He will play for Comilla Victorians alongside Pakistan's Shoaib Malik and Ahmed Shehzad, West Indies stars Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Marlon Samuels.

The side will be skippered by Bangladeshi fast bowler Mashrafe Mortaza.

Confirmed BPL fixtures: Sun 22 Nov v Dhaka Dynamites, Tue 24 Nov v Chittagong Vikings, Wed 25 Nov v Barisal Bulls.
