Darren Stevens is going to be the oldest cricketer
Where there is love in cricket, there is no rate for age. I was talking about Darren Stevens, the oldest recognized English cricketer in the history of cricket. The 45-year-old is currently playing for Kent at the Stevens County Championships.
His club Kent has extended his contract for another year due to his outstanding performance this year. At the same time, if he plays on the field next season, Stevens will make his name in the record of the oldest cricketer.
The record holder for the oldest first-class cricketer is Stevens compatriot Eddie Hemings. He was 48 years old before leaving the game. Stevens, who is set to step down in April next year, will take to the field next season to break that record.
Stevens, who is set to own the rare record, said: “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to play next season. I love playing county cricket but I didn’t want to play on a small scale like this time. But now I am happy. “
The Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) has also played first-class cricket for 23 years. Mashrafe: Stevens won the BPL for Ashraful’s Dhaka Gladiators.
