Harry Dearden Bio

Harry Edward Dearden is a talented left-handed batsman hailing from Bury, England. He began his cricketing journey in the Lancashire age-group sides, showcasing his skills and potential at a young age. In 2017, Leicestershire recognized Dearden’s talent and signed him on a contract for the season after he impressed for the club’s second XI.

Dearden made his debut for Leicestershire in two late-season Championship matches in 2016, with his first game taking place against Derbyshire at Derby. Although he only managed to score two half-centuries in his debut season, his passion and dedication on the field did not go unnoticed. However, despite his early promise, he suffered a setback when he ruptured his cruciate ligament while fielding and required surgery.

The following season, Dearden proved his worth as he featured in almost all of Leicestershire’s games across three formats. With consistent performances, he solidified his position in the squad and displayed his determination to contribute to the team’s success. However, despite his impressive 50-over form in 2019, Dearden struggled to convert his potential into consistent performances, averaging just under 20 in the Championship and scoring at a strike rate of just over 100 in the T20 Blast.

In 2020, Dearden faced a moment of disappointment when he found himself apologizing to the club’s supporters after an innings of 36 not out off 32 balls from the number six position in a T20 match against Derbyshire. Although he played a valiant innings, Leicestershire fell short of the target by just five runs with only four wickets down. This incident further fueled Dearden’s determination to improve his game and perform at his best.

The subsequent season posed a challenge for Dearden as he had a quiet start and lost his place in the Championship team. Despite this setback, he remained committed to his craft and continued working hard to regain his position. With his undeterred spirit, Dearden remained a vital part of Leicestershire’s squad and played a crucial role whenever called upon.
