Haggett hits superb century for second XI

All-rounder Calum Haggett smashed a superb century as a combined Kent-Northants second XI entertained Warwickshire at The County Ground, Beckenham this week.

The 27-year-old smashed the second 50 off just 22 balls before grabbing a wicket before the close as the visitors extended their lead to 139.

Haggett hit eleven fours and five sixes as wickets fell at the other end, adding 57 for the final wicket with Ivan Thomas (1*) before being run out.

It was a good workout for the bowlers in docile batting conditions. Warwickshire won the toss and Scottish opener Andy Umeed (85) and England Under-19 international Liam Banks (80) put on 165 for the first wicket.

Several batsmen got starts but Alex Thomson was the only other player to pass 50 with Ivan Thomas the pick of the attack with 2/25 off 10 overs.

Imran Qayyum also claimed a pair of wickets with one each for Haggett and Adam Riley as the visitors were dismissed early on day two for 340.

After Kent academy scholar Kashif Ali departed early, Ollie Robinson impressed for Kent stroking six boundaries in a fluent 40 before being trapped LBW by left-arm spinner Sunny Singh.

Haggett’s salvo kept Kent and Northants in touching distance before the combined XI took four late wickets on day two to leave the match finely poised
