Joe Denly Testimonial 2019

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

Joe's Launch Lunch Update

As a supporter of Joe you will be no doubt be aware of his busy winter schedule. He is currently in the West Indies with England for the winter tour before heading out to India to join the Kolkata Knight Riders for the 2019 IPL.

We have been careful to organise events for Joe's Testimonial year around his anticipated schedule taking in to account England, IPL and Kent fixtures. Unfortunately, the IPL has now been moved forward a week and Joe is contractually obliged to be there a week before the team's first game on the 24th March. Therefore, it is with huge regret that he is now unable to attend his Launch.

In light of this our initial instinct was to cancel the Launch Lunch, but on discussing this with those of you who had already bought tables it became clear that there was an overwhelming consensus that we should carry on. Joe would like to express his deep gratitude for this support and would like to assure you that he will thank you all personally. We look forward to seeing you on March 21st at The Mecure, Maidstone.

Thanks again from the Testimonial Team for your support and understanding.

For any queries on this matter please contact Heidi Coleman, Testimonial Co-ordinator: heidi@joedenlytestimonial2019.co.uk

Profile

County Testimonials are designed for cricketers like Joe Denly - Kent vice-captain and the PCA MVP of the Year in 2018 and beneficiary for 2019.

The first Canterbury-born cricketer to be capped by the club, Joe started playing for his home county at 11 years of age after learning the game at Whitstable Cricket Club with his father Nick and brother Sam.

He went on to join the inaugural intake of the County Academy at 16 years of age and made his Kent debut in 2004. He was awarded his county cap in 2008.

Joe’s considerable talent was noted early on his career, scoring three half centuries in three Under-19s Tests whilst touring India with England in 2005. Denly’s England appearances did not stop there; he went on to play in nine ODIs and two T20s for his country.

Joe has played almost 400 matches in all formats for Kent since his debut in 2004. Initially known as an opening batsman, Joe has scored more than 10,000 First Class runs including 27 centuries and 54 half centuries. More recently Joe has become an exceptional all-rounder.

His phenomenal all-round performance with bat and ball has seen him rewarded with the 2018 PCA MVP of the Year title which shows statistically that Denly was the most consistent performer in county cricket. Joe was also crowned Vitality Blast Player of the Year, Royal London One-Day Cup Player of the Year and PCA Players’ Player of the Year for 2018.

In the last two seasons, the Kent vice-captain has broken the record individual scores in both T20 and one-day cricket as well as sharing the biggest partnership in the club's history (with Sean Dickson at Beckenham).

His excellent white ball skills earned Joe the opportunity to play in the Bangladesh Premier League for the Dhaka Dynamites and the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League. He also played for the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League in 2018.

Domestically he scored 1,749 runs across all formats of the game during the 2018 season and took 57 wickets (a remarkable achievement given that he had only taken 75 wickets in his previous 14 seasons). His exceptional form has earned him a first call-up to the England Test squad to tour Sri Lanka this winter.

Paul Farbrace

Joe has been without doubt somebody who has worked hard for all that he has achieved in the game, and has done that without ever getting ahead of himself.
