Men’s Second XI

Kent players warm up with club cricket friendlies

Several Kent pros and Academy scholars were in action as clubs finished their pre-season preparations with friendlies around the county.

Batsman Zak Crawley had a spectacular cameo with the ball for Sevenoaks Vine, claiming a hat-trick to seal victory over Tunbridge Wells.

All-rounder Adam Ball picked up 2/25 in nine overs as Tenterden won at The Mote before travelling to Hove for 12th man duties with the first XI.

Matt Hunn took 1/22 for Sandwich Town who defeated Canterbury at The Butts.

Academy scholars Jordan Cox and Jan Gray also impressed for the hosts: wicketkeeper-batsman Cox scored 133 off 131 balls including 20 fours and a six and leg spinner Gray picked up 3/40 in nine overs.

Fellow scholar, Oliver Robinson, scored 63, took two stumpings and a catch for Beckenham as they defeated HSBC at home.

The second XI start their season with a double-header against Middlesex at Radlett with a 50-over Trophy match on Easter Monday before a three-day Championship match on Tuesday.
