From Cricinfo:

“…a terrific Kent batting performance [from] Sam Northeast, the highly talented 22-year-old opener, [who made] a championship best 165.

This was the former England Under 19 batsman’s sixth first-class hundred overall and his third of what has turned out to be a coming of age season.

Northeast…. batted beautifully for six hours here without giving a chance, striking 14 fours and depositing spinners Wes Durston and David Wainwright for one six apiece…. before finally upper-cutting a catch to third man.”

From Cricinfo:

“Sam Billings hit the highest ever one-day total by a Kent player at Canterbury and Darren Stevens snared five wickets in 19 balls to ease the Spitfires to an emphatic 111-run win over Derbyshire…..

….Kent [were] in trouble at 123 for 5. That was the cue for 21-year-old Billings to move into top gear. He eased to his 50 from 46 balls then cut loose with an array of shots, the majority of which were orthodox, yet some were impish and improvised in the fashion of another wiry Kent gloveman, the legendary Alan Knott.

Sweeping wristily, driving on the up and chipping the ball to all parts, Billings reached his first century for Kent, off a misfield to backward point, from 97 balls and with 11 fours.

He really cut loose when in tandem with Geraint Jones as the two wicketkeepers added 117 in 14.1 overs. Billings was so dominant that his senior partner Jones contributed only 38 to their hundred stand.

With 143 to his name come the final over of the innings, Billings went all guns blazing for his 150 but missed out with an attempted Dilscoop over fine leg to be bowled. He left to a standing ovation after 113 balls and with 17 fours and a six.”

 

ps I do have the “bowled” shot but not including it this time, Sam!

From the BBC website:

“Ashley Shaw led the fightback with a five-wicket haul on his Championship debut as Kent dragged their way back into the contest at Canterbury.

The young left-armer (5-118) took four of the seven wickets to fall in the morning session as, from 370-3 overnight, Derbyshire made 460 all out……….

But it was Shaw who sparked the Kent recovery with three wickets in the space of five balls.

The 20-year-old started the day by removing Derbyshire nightwatchman Tony Palladino with a yorker and then in his next over had Dan Redfern caught at second slip and trapped Greg Smith leg before in successive balls, before later picking up Jonathan Clare.

In doing so he became the first Kent player to take five wickets on his Championship debut since Muttiah Muralitharan in 2003.”

BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Cole:

“Kent got their just desserts for tight bowling in the first session and, for Ashley Shaw, it was reward for never giving up on a batsman-friendly strip.”
