Scotland wicketkeeper Sarah Bryce and young off-spinner Megan Belt bagged most of the prizes in the Kent Cricket Awards 2020 that were announced on Thursday (October 15).

Signed by Kent ahead of this season, Bryce scored 78 runs in two innings in the Kent Women’s London Championship campaign. She played a crucial role in the ten-wicket victory against Essex scoring an unbeaten 51 at a strike rate of 130.77 including eight boundaries and two sixes.

The fourth leading run-scorer of the tournament won both the Batter of the Year and the Player of the Year awards this year.

Among bowlers, Belt took four wickets in two matches at an average of 14.0 and ended the tournament as the sixth-highest wicket-taker. The 23-year-old operated at an economy of just 2.8 runs per over.

Her performance was critical in reducing Essex to 112 in the second game, especially, after the defeat against Surrey in the previous match. She took three important wickets giving away 17 runs in her 10-over spell.

The young off-spinner grabbed both the Bowler of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards just like she did in the previous year’s Kent Cricket Awards.

Kalea Moore’s impressive fielding efforts saw her win the Fielder of the Year award.
