Kent name squad ahead of Gloucestershire LV= CC, Bristol Cricket Week

Wednesday 15th August 2012

Men’s First Team

Kent have named a 12 man squad to face Gloucestershire in their LV= County Championship match at Bristol.

Kent go from one festival week to another as they aim to keep their LV= County Championship promotion dreams alive during Bristol Cricket Week.

Despite two damaging championship defeats against Derbyshire and Essex, Kent remain in touch with the promotion chasers, sitting in fourth spot, just a point adrift of second placed Hampshire – with four games to play. This week’s fixture, against third from bottom Gloucestershire, represents a chance for Rob Key’s men to move into the promotion positions at the top of division two.

Kent will be without James Tredwell and Matt Coles, with the duo currently playing for the England Lions against Australia A at Edgbaston. Mark Davies and Brendan Nash return to the side, after being rested against Essex last week and Adam Riley fills the spinning void left vacant by Tredwell.
