Darren Stevens, Kent’s 45-year-old all-rounder, played a knock for the ages in the County Championship on Friday. Stevens scored an insane 190 from 149 balls, taking his team from 128/8 against Glamorgan to 307.
Stevens added a 166-run partnership for the 9th wicket with Miguel Cummins, who scored just 1 run. This was the highest first-class partnerships in which one player scored more than 90% of the runs.
With 15 fours & 15 sixes, 150 of his Stevens’s 190 runs came in boundaries.
This was the 36th first-class hundred for Stevens, who turned 45 last month.

Stevens’s dream day continued in the Glamorgan innings, as he got Australian Marnus Labuschagne out LBW.
And now Darren Stevens gets Marnus Labuschagne cheaply lbw – for the second time this summer. Is there nothing the man can’t do!
