Big chance for young Bermudan Bell with Kent 

Rookie Bermudan pace bowler Damali Bell has joined Kent as part of
the county’s new overseas player development programme.

The talented left-armer will join the Kent Academy for six months after
being awarded a national sponsorship by his country.

In welcoming Bell to St Lawrence, Kent’s high performance director
Simon Willis said: “We are very much looking forward to giving Damali
the experience of playing in a variety of conditions. He will be
exposed to a good quality of cricket as well as an intense training
schedule with us, and will get the opportunity to learn how to cope as an
individual away from home comforts.”

Bell is the first inductee of the Kent’s Overseas Player Development
Programme which is available for up to three players a year between the
ages of 18 and 22 - and his inclusion has delighted Bermuda head coach
David Moore.

“I am extremely pleased that Damali has been awarded this scholarship,”
said Moore.

“He is a hard working individual who shows commitment and dedication in
practice and during games. Kent’s Academy has been successful in
enhancing the performance of players, offering first class coaching from
leading experts. I look forward to watching how Damali develops with
this opportunity.”
