Muyeye extends Kent contract
Muyeye extends Kent contract

Batsman Tawanda Muyeye has extended his Kent contract until at least the end of 2025.

The right-hander joined the Club on the eve of the 2021 season after being named Wisden Schools Cricketer of the Year, and has 31 appearances for the county in his burgeoning career so far.

As the 21-year-old’s first-class batting average reaches almost 30.00, he has represented Kent across all formats over the past two seasons – including an innings full of promise opening the batting in a Vitality Blast match away to Surrey this past season.

A fine stroke maker, Muyeye has already caught the eye of cricket supporters across the country with how he approaches the game. Alongside his unique style of batting, he has also become a fine outfielder with a number of memorable fielding performances during Kent’s white-ball campaigns.

On extending his Kent contract, Muyeye said: “I’m really excited to continue my journey as a professional cricketer at Kent.

“I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity to play for this team across all formats – I’m still at the beginning of my career but to have been afforded these chances to play and keep improving has been a great motivator for me in becoming the best cricketer I can be.”

Kent’s Director of Cricket, Paul Downton, said: “Tawanda is a highly talented young player who is held in high regard by the coaching staff here and we’re delighted to secure his status as a Kent player for the next three seasons.

“He is one of the hardest workers in the side and has a very high ceiling – we have seen glimpses of his talent already as a Kent player. If he continues to work hard I am sure he will be a big part of our future at Kent.”
