Sarah Bryce, the wicketkeeper-batter, will play for Kent in the 2020 domestic season, it was announced on Thursday (January 30). Scotland-born Bryce played for Nottinghamshire in the 2019 season and finished as the fourth-highest run-scorer for the team.

She scored 175 runs in only the six matches she played in the County Championship. She also took 10 catches and effected four stumpings as wicketkeeper.

Bryce has also featured in 51 T20 matches for Nottinghamshire scoring 1273 runs at a healthy average of 38.57 in the Women’s County T20 Division Two in June 2019. She also hit a ton against Cheshire. In the 20 T20Is for Scotland, the youngster has managed to score 511 runs scoring two fifties as well.

Bryce is happy to join Kent and is looking forward to making an impact with the County. "Kent have an outstanding pedigree in women’s cricket, with a record number of Championship titles and multiple T20 titles, too," Bryce said.

“I’m eager to improve my game and I feel that there is no better place to do so in domestic women’s cricket than at Kent, where I can learn from experienced internationals and look to contribute on the field straight away.”

Paul Downtown director of Kent cricket is happy to have the classy wicketkeeper-batter in the squad. He feels Bryce will fit into Kent culture and will contribute in many ways.

“Sarah is an exciting young talent in the women’s game and we’re thrilled that she has chosen to continue her development at Kent," Paul Downton said. "She is already an accomplished wicketkeeper-batter and will add to the existing quality we have in the Kent Women squad here."
