Friday 2nd May 2014

Men’s First Team

Kent Cricket have named an almost identical squad to play Surrey in Sunday’s LV= County Championship match at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, Canterbury. ‘We have included all-rounder Adam Ball in the squad for Sunday’s game against Surrey with Charlie Hartley making way. The lads are really looking forward to the game against Surrey and are keen to get a positive result from the fixture’, stated Head Coach Jimmy Adams.

This will be the first time the two neighbouring Counties have faced each other, in Canterbury, since Kent’s emphatic 2011 victory. In that match Kent won by 265 runs, having dismissed Surrey for 127 and 104 in their innings. Highlights of the match included Darren Stevens taking 7/21 in Surrey’s first innings and Captain Rob Key’s 110 in the Kent second innings. Kent have won three and drawn three of their last seven home Championship matches against Surrey (lost one).

The match begins 11am Sunday, 4 May, at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, Canterbury.

1. Rob Key (c)
