Nick Kwant is an explosive left-hand batter who played for Canterbury Kings during their 2017/18 Super Smash T20 campaign.

The youngster was plucked to open the batting, alongside fellow CricX star Michael Pollard, courtesy of his “power-hitting” ability. He played in 7 T20 matches alongside the likes of Ben Stokes and Blackcaps contingent Todd Astle, Andrew Ellis, Matt Henry, Henry Nicholls, and Tom Latham.

His best innings in Kings colours was his 35-ball 48 in their successful run chase against the star-studded Otago Volts side featuring Neil Wagner, Jimmy Neeshan, and Mark Craig.

The big-hitting left-hander was recruited by Kings’ coach Gary Stead, who suggested Kwant “hits a big ball and plays with no fear. If he gets going, he can take an attack apart and that’s what we like about him”.

Kwant featured for Canterbury through the age groups and has been an ‘A’ team regular at the National Provincial tournaments. He also plays for Riccarton in the Christchurch Metro Competition – arguably New Zealand’s strongest club competition. In 2020/21, he averaged 50.33, 38, and 34.57, in the Two-Day, 50-Over, and T20 formats for the club, then backed up with a one-day average of 38.25 last summer.

In 2019, Kwant played for Middlesbrough in the strong North Yorkshire and South Durham Premier League with decent success, hitting 841 runs at 32.35 in both league and cup cricket. However, he returned last summer (2022) and dominated for Alrewas in the Derbyshire ECB Premier League hitting 1,265 runs at 57.50 across all forms of cricket (947 runs at 55.71 in the Premier League itself).

The UK Ancestry Visa holding kiwi run machine is in the form of his life and is now eager to return for a third UK stint in 2023.
