Howzat for super performance

Four young Kent cricketers helped their London and East team make history by winning the T20 competition of the ECB Super-4s at the National Cricket Performance Centre at Loughborough – the first time in six years of competition for the country’s outstanding Under-17s that either the T20 or 50-over champions have come from south of the Midlands.

And to cap off a memorable achievement, one of the Kent quartet, wicketkeeper/batsman Jordan Cox, was named the Player-of-the Tournament.

Cox scored 25, 127, 35* and 22 in the final against the North , a game London and East won by 12-runs.

Seamer Tom Davis took four wickets during the tournament and scored a valuable unbeaten 22 in the final.

Leg-spinning batsman Isaac Dilkes was also among the runs, scoring 35, 87 off 42 balls, and 50 off 26 in the final.

The other Kent member of the squad, which also included players from Surrey, Sussex, Essex and Middlesex, was young off-spinner Hugh Scott.

Well done lads !!
