Player Biography

Kent Cricket is delighted to announce the signing of right-arm fast-medium bowler Jacob Duffy on a short-term contract.

The New Zealand international has been involved in his country’s Test squads over the past two years, and since the beginning of 2020, has taken 82 wickets in 28 matches.

His current best first-class figures of 7-89 came for his native Otago against Wellington in the 2019/20 Plunket Shield, a season in which he was the tournament’s joint top-wicket taker.

Most recently, the right-armer was involved with New Zealand’s tour matches before the start of their Test series against England, where he took three wickets in two innings at an average of 15.33.

He will be available for Kent in their next two LV= Insurance County Championship matches against Gloucestershire and Surrey.
