ABOUT

Kevin Duers
Kevin is an ECB Level 2 Qualified cricket coach with over 20 years experience in coaching a variety of age groups, from under 6 's to over 60s as well as disabled cricket. He works locally within schools, Saffron Walden cricket club and coaching District cricket for Essex.
 
Kevin has a wealth of experience being a former Zimbabwe international cricketer, playing in 30 first class matches in a career that spanned over 10 years, capped with 6 appearances at the 1992 world cup held in Australia. He played alongside players such as Andy Flower, former England cricket coach and once rated the best batsman in world cricket. Kevin also played against many notable cricketing stars, including Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara and Martin Crowe. He also appeared in the first ever 300+ ODI run chase by Sri Lanka in the 1992 world cup, where Zimbabwe narrowly missed out on a victory.
 
Kevin bowled over 5000 first class balls, going for just 2500 runs, while taking 77 wickets, with a career best of 8/102. He has bowled some notable spells in his career, including 8 overs 0/19 against South Africa in the 92' world cup, as well as 6 overs 1/17 against New Zealand in the same tournament. Although Kevin was a bowler, rarely parting his number 11 batting spot, he did make a fair amount of runs, notching a few useful scores in his career. Unfortunately Kevin was forced to retire shortly after the 1992 world cup due to a spate of progressive injuries throughout his career, this did mean however that he missed out on the opportunity to play Test Cricket as Zimbabwe only gained test status later that year.
