Wednesday 15th July 2009

AN exciting day is in store as Kent go into the final day of their Second Eleven Championship match with Sussex at Canterbury. Kent resume two for no wicket, in their second innings, chasing 242 to win.

On an eventful second day, Kent were dismissed for 170 with all-rounder James Goodman (pictured) top-scoring with an unbeaten 68. Andy Smith hit 44 and wicketkeeper Paul Dixey contributed 31.

Second time around, Sussex were dismissed for 201. Spinner Charlie Hemphrey led the way with three wickets while there were two apiece for Phil Edwards and Adam Ball.

It means that Kent need 242 to win and they resume two for no wicket. It should be an interesting final day. All are welcome at the St Lawrence Ground to see if the Kent second string can pull off a victory against their Sussex counterparts.
