Hard work vi­tal

JOE DENLY ad­mits hard work by him and the rest of the Kent team is vi­tal if they want to turn around a low-key start to the new sea­son. His in­clu­sion in the lat­est Eng­land Per­for­mance squad shows se­lec­tors haven’t lost faith in the 24-year-old Eng­land one-day opener’s tal­ents and had things gone bet­ter in the win­ter, Denly might well now have been swap­ping Can­ter­bury for the Caribbean and the World Twenty20 Cham­pi­onships. In­stead, he went into this week’s fourth LV County Cham­pi­onship match of the sea­son against War­wick­shire av­er­ag­ing less than 15, af­ter scor­ing just 95 runs in six in­nings. He said: “It’s all ar­eas we need to work on, es­pe­cially my­self. I got a cou­ple of 30s, and an 80 in the one-day game but I still need to build on that. We have been dis­ap­pointed with our first few per­for­mances and want to learn from the mis­takes.”
