Men’s First Team

Sean Dickson could make his first-class debut for Kent in the LV= County Championship match at Derbyshire on Friday (11am start).

The 23-year-old Johannesburg-born batsman who holds a UK passport was included in the squad for the washed-out Royal London One-Day Cup match at Edgbaston on Wednesday but could make his red-ball debut after signing a pro contract with Kent in July.

Fabian Cowdrey returns to the four-day squad after hitting a half-century against Nottinghamshire in the One-Day Cup on Monday evening.

All-rounders Matt Coles and Darren Stevens are rested after a busy schedule of limited-overs cricket.

Kent squad: 17 Sam Northeast (c), 23 Daniel Bell-Drummond, 4 Rob Key, 6 Joe Denly, 21 Ben Harmison, 58 Sean Dickson, 30 Fabian Cowdrey, 20 Sam Billings (wk), 25 Calum Haggett, 15 James Tredwell, 14 Matt Hunn, 5 Ivan Thomas.

Derbyshire squad: 77 Wayne Madsen (c), 1 Billy Godleman, 26 Ben Slater, 22 Chesney Hughes, 3 Wes Durston, 18 Alex Hughes, 57 Shiv Thakor, 16 Harvey Hosein (wk), 20 Matthew Critchley, 28 Tony Palladino, 36 Ben Cotton, 4 Mark Footitt.
