“I have a really good memory of playing in Kent in the past, and I’m being driven to bring more success to the county in 2022,” Henry said in a statement, according to the Kent Cricket website.

“It was great to see Kent win the silverware in 2021. I know more trophies will be the target of everyone in the county next season. I hope I can influence to make that happen. I think, “he added.

The New Zealand Pacemaker finished the year as the best Wickettaker in Division 2 with an average bowling of just 15.48, winning 75 wickets in just 11 games in the 2018 County Championship county.

“We know he has a big impact on our dressing room, and he regularly showed that he is the highest quality bowler in British conditions,” said Kent’s Cricket Director. Paul Downton said.

In 2021, Henry finished with six wickets in his second test with England in New Zealand in June at Edgbaston. He currently has 37 wickets in 14 test matches in his country. (ANI)
