Kent will have a tricky chase, one would imagine, to score nearly 200 for the win here, but they polished off Glamorgan’s tail presto after SMarsh had shown his test class batting to overhaul the first innings advantage.

Not looking very tricky for Kent yet. I think Glamorgan needed a lot more runs in their second innings. In Cardiff batting tends to get easier later in the game, and in this game I fear the change in the weather has accentuated that trend.

Surprising as it is after Kentís batting adventures so far this season, they are looking good value to get this done and with relative alacrity.

Makes you scratch your head and wonder about what was going on in the first dig after Glamorganís respectable opening partnership.

On the first day Glamorgan were incredibly lucky to be none down at lunch. Despite eventually carrying his bat, Murphy seemed to play and miss at most of the deliveries he faced. Glamorgan were certainly guilty of getting into collapse mode in their heads on that first afternoon, but the lunchtime score was a miracle.

Thanks for the insight - makes for a vivid picture of early season conditions when there are clouds around, in contrast to those in the sunshine of today in Cardiff.

Close finish likely between Leics and Durham. 49 more needed and 7 wickets down as I write this.

Hold the presses, Durham win now seems certain with 9 wickets down in Leicester’s chase.

Edit: Left-armer Weighell takes 7 wickets to wrap it up in style. A pretty good one to win after following on!

Superb win for Durham. It's not often a team wins after following on.

Record stand of 278 for the 6th wicket for Durham at Derbyshire.

They now have an unlikely lead.

A very good day's work sees Kent record their fourth successive Championship victory over Sussex to move into second place in Div Two.

Matt Henry made a vital half century down the order for Kent before completing his ten-fer. He now has 37 wickets at an average of 9.59 and strike rate of 20.5. Looking like the overseas signing of the season so far.

Kent 2nd in the table despite only 1 batting bonus point in four games? I thought low scores were supposed to make one-day matches interesting, not championship matches, or have we reverted to the 1960s and uncovered pitches?

Kent’s bowling came through despite no Darren Stevens in this one, although Matt Henry, proving to be the best overseas recruit around with his 35 or so wickets already, more than picked up the slack.

Enjoyed 3 days at Canterbury (not the weather terribly, especially on Saturday when floodlights were required most of the day) watching Kent defeat Sussex in a game where the advantage swung back & forth with (in my opinion) Sussex has the advantage until half an hour or so before the end as Luke Wright & Ben Brown doubled the Sussex score, and took it to 152-4 (chasing 270). It took an excellent return catch by Ivan Thomas to dismiss Wright for 47, before Henry returned to take 4 wickets and blow away the tail.

As Kent have one batting point all season, to have won 3 out of 4 is remarkable. Quite frankly the only reason this has been possible is the astonishing impact Matt Henry has had leading the attack. Not unreasonable to say he has been the difference between a record of 3 wins in 4 and zero or 1.


Highlights can be seen here, by the way:

Only 20 years old, a name to watch out for?
Another hundred, and against Middlesex in a fight to save the game. He can certainly bat for long periods.

In the Glos v Kent game at Bristol, Kent have scored over 100 more runs in the first innings than were scored in the entire match between the two sides at Canterbury back in April.
