I'd be shoked if 190-200 isn't enough this year for 2nd, and 210 for 1st outright - Notts could probably draw all their remaining fixtures and still go up - a win in the Kent/Worcs game, especially for kent who only have to play Notts once, would actually be a step forward for Notts to guaranteed promotion, but at the expense of making the fight for 1st closer. Given who Notts still have to play, 2 wins and 2 draws would be around 60 points, so they can even afford a loss or two (hopefully to Kent!)

Fair points, Scotty, although Yasir hasn't been doing too well with the ball for Kent, thus far. It was more a comment about the wicket as the match gets into the final day and a half, and Kent's ability to bowl teams out.

Now Ali has snaffled Adam Rouse and Coles, I see, but Kent's lead is well over 300 and Denly still going strong.

Leicestershire have beaten Samit Patel by 21 runs.

I bet he doesn't forfeit an innings in his next match.

Oh I agree - although I'd say that 4 wins out of 6 matches, with the other two being a draw vs Leics on a batting paradise, and then the only match where we were distinctly the 2nd best, vs Durham, where we still took 16 wickets, suggests we are better this year at the bowling malarkey than in previous seasons. Even if it is largely down to the indefatigable Stevens. Coles seems to have re-found his mojo a bit this game, and if we were to declare in the next 6 overs say, and have 7/8 overs to have a pop at them tonight, we would still have a lead of ~360 and they'd have 104 overs to survive, which could be tricky. Draw is still probably marginally the favourite result however

There we are then; Kent have set them essentially 400 to win and a full day and a bit to survive. Joe Denly, last man out, attains his highest first-class score of 227 in a superb effort.

Yes slight mis-calculation on my part, I had 16 games in my head . As you quite rightly say 210+ should secure 1st place. Yes a Kent win in their game v Worcs and a Notts win v Kent would mean that it would be Notts' promotion to lose.

If you discount the extras, Samit beat Leics by an innings and 13 :-)

Worcs making their run chase against Kent look easy

Perhaps an indication too that the pitch was pretty lifeless.

After Moeen took the attack to Kent, Joe Clarke was able to pick up where he left off. Seems the pitch improved as the match wore on, with Kent's first innings 260 the low-water mark.

Ben Duckett has cracked 100 in the first session v Leicestershire - in this case a hundred before tea.

In the commentary I was listening to (Glam vs Derbys) they suggested that the first break be called the lea break and the second break the tupper break ...

Michael Vaughan was all about lumping of Durham to win yesterday and this morning. Not sure that would've been a smart investment (or why you'd listen to Vaughan about anything apart from maybe tactics from the series' he played in).

Is he gambling away his hard-won fortune?

Two more Surrey players out on loan with Arun Harinath & Matt Pillians in the Leics XI for this round.

Derbyshire's Hamidullah Qadri has become the first person to play county cricket who was born in the 2000s. He was born on December 5, 2000.

After a successful game with Derbys they have recalled 19 year old McKerr who took 10 wickets against Northants.

Someone mentioned to me yesterday that he looked a lot older than that in his Cricinfo picture and he certainly doesn't look 16! He was born in Afghanistan so perhaps his age is calculated like some of the Pakistanis like Afridi calculate theirs.

Rain has intervened in Kent's favour, making a draw possible although still pretty unlikely, barring loss of time in the post-tea session.

Edit: Scratch that; with Darren Stevens unavailable to bat, Kent are effectively 8 down and there are up to 60 plus overs available when play begins in just over half hour.
