Fast-bowling all-rounder Grant Stewart signed his first professional contract for Kent in 2017 after his 2nd XI form promised he could alleviate the county’s shortage of pace bowlers.
Australian-born Stewart is not classed as an overseas player as he has an EU passport through his Italian mother.
A qualified civil engineer who grew up in New South Wales, he made his first-class debut as a bowling allrounder in the final game of the 2017 Championship season.
Better was to come in Kent’s promotion season in 2018, led by an extraordinary display in a floodlit rout of Middlesex at Canterbury.
Only playing thanks to the absence of Matt Henry and Darren Stevens, he had taken four wickets in as many games in his first-class career when he took the new pink ball, but two hours later, he had his maiden five-wicket haul as he swung the Dukes ball under the lights.
He then followed up his career-best 6 for 22 with a lusty 103, his maiden first-class hundred arriving in just 73 balls.
Stewart was a part of the Kent Spitfires side that won the Vitality Blast in 2021, but personally for the all-rounder, his T20 performances earned him a call-up for Italy ahead of their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier held in Spain that October.
Playing international tournament cricket for the first time, Stewart recorded a new T20 best score in his third match for Italy, with 51 runs coming from 31 deliveries against an attack featuring former Kent seamer, Copenhagen-born Amjad Khan.
