‘It’s a brilliant landmark for me but I’ve definitely got a lot of unfinished business,’ new vice-captain says

When he travels to Northamptonshire for next week’s County Championship season opener, Daniel Bell-Drummond will be just over a month shy of marking a decade as a Kent player.

Bell-Drummond, the opening batsman who was recently appointed vice-captain of the club where he made his debut as a 17-year-old, believes he has plenty left to achieve.

“It’s absolutely flown,” Bell-Drummond said from Canterbury. “I can remember it very clearly, my debut game here against Loughborough Uni in 2011, taking a bit of time off school to come and play.

“Some of the guys get stuck into me about how long I’ve been playing, even [Kent batting coach] Michael Yardy says, ‘it makes me feel young,’ because he’s played against me a fair bit.

“I still feel quite young. I’m 28 this year so there’s still a lot of time left hopefully and I’m looking forward to the season. It marks 10 years but I’ve still got so much to learn. It’s a brilliant landmark for me but I’ve definitely got a lot of unfinished business and I know I can be a lot better.”
