Rather good captain's knock, so far, by a certain R. Key, fending off the might of the England pace attack - Harmison & Plunkett. 165* as I write this.

We're playing Surrey at the Whitgift School in Croydon, am I right in thinking that it's a bit of a batsmans track up there? 300 for Ramps probably then!

If Kent are looking for a new coach Fletcher is available. He should feel at home there with van Jaarsveld, Dexter, Hall, McLaren and he knows Key and Jones.

Looks like there's lots to be done if we're to go further in this years T20. Bit dissapointed by todays performnce against the Sussex Sharks seeing as we did put them in a sticky position at one time.

Weathers not helping us in the LV. A bit mystified over the ECB's deicison to allow us a rematch against Worcestershire, even though there were other games in the country that were affected by the weather.

It's a good and fair decision to replay, in the circumstances. Yorkshire (Martin Moxon) are whingeing about it, however.

When you consider the horrible state of a ground that had been submerged beneath the Severn, with a brown outfield, how Worcester could say with a straight face that they hoped the ground would be fit for a first class fixture is beyond any reasonable-minded observer.

I realise other counties have suffered weather restrictions in their round of matches, but the situation at New Road was drastically different. Those other venues were properly prepared for play before weather intervened. Worcester was nowhere near ready for play and was probably at least a week of good sunshine away from being so ready.

For certain, Worcester could have been penalised with docked points, but that would scarcely have been fair to Kent, denied any prospect of salvaging some badly needed points in their ongoing relegation battle, but for a measly 4 for the abandonment.

Rightly so he is whinging. Its funny that a Kent fan thinks its the right decision.

I have said elsewhere, it is wrong to replay this game due to the fact that it is the nature of the British weather.

Games occasionally get wiped out and its just classed as a draw. It opens the floodgates (no pun intended) for everyone else to ask for a new game in the event of a wipeout.

It has nothing to do with Moxon, though. As the Kent person said, Worcester made their financial problems to become Kent's when they insisted on not switching a fixture from a ground that was patently still unfit for first class cricket.

I already admitted to being a Kent fan, so no surprises there. In terms of the potential for setting a dangerous precedent? I don't think so. Counties have a responsibility to prepare a ground that is fit for a first class fixture.

As much as I sympathise with Worcester's plight after diabolical weather, and the desire to rehabilitate New Road as soon as possible to not further bleed red ink, they made a wrong decision by insisting the game be played at Worcester when there were viable alternatives. Kent did not deserve to be punished for Worcester's chairman's wrongheaded thinking.

Viable options? Not really. Try putting on a four day championship game at the drop of a hat in a venue that hasn't been planned for. And that's just logistically before talking about the cost of such an operation to a county that has already lost huge amounts this season. The game has long been in the fixture list, and through no fault of Worcestershire was unfit for play owing to the weather. Thems the breaks.

Worcester may not have received the 75K pounds from the ECB for the rehab of New Road had their plight not been highlighted through this issue, and I already said I have some sympathy for them, but they ought to have had contingency plans to relocate the fixture.

It was by no means "at the drop of a hat" as you have suggested. Disagree that "thems the breaks".

Kent offered to play the game at Canterbury didn't they? That would have been a perfectly reasonable solution. I think the ECB have done the right thing in this instance, Kent have been victim of the Worcestershire chairman risking a 4 day game to get the Sky cash on Friday, which proved in vain anyway

Canterbury wasn't possible, apparently, due to the Tour de France (??), but Beckenham was offered.
