As a youngster, Daniel was regarded as one of the most exciting young batters in the UK for good reason. He first turned heads at Kent before appearing for England at U15, 17 and 19 level, becoming the highest run-scorer for his country in youth ODIs with a century v Australia in 2012.
Aged 17, Daniel made his first-class debut and soon impressed with an effortless 80 v Loughborough MCCU. He would secure Kent’s No.3 slot in 2013, scoring 466 County runs and topping Kent's Championship averages a year later.
Other club achievements include a world-record T20 opening stand in 2017 as he shared in a 207 run partnership v Essex and becoming the T20 Blast's leading run-scorer in 2020.
Daniel has also made his mark for England. For the Lions, his 171 was part of the second highest limited-overs partnership in world cricket - 367 with Ben Duckett v Sri Lanka, and in 2015, Daniel notched a 92-ball Century against Australia.
