Hockley and Mahmood hits tons for the second team

Tuesday 11th August 2009

KENT’S second team have the upper hand going into the final day of their Championship match with Essex at Beckenham. Batting first, Essex declared on 357-6 with two wickets apiece for Will Rudge and James Goodman.

James Hockley (pictured) then showed his class with a knock of 152 and he received good support from Azhar Mahmood (107) and Dan Stickels 61. Wicketkeeper Paul Dixey hit 40. It was good to see Azhar hit a ton ahead of Saturday’s big Twenty20 Cup Finals Day at Edgbaston.

Essex will resume their second innings on 37-1.
