Sam Billings found form in his last two outings at home with a fine 50 against Hampshire before an unbeaten 53-ball century on Sunday against Somerset.

The 24-year-old Kent Cricket Academy graduate said: "Games are coming thick and fast but we’re not far away at all as a side – that’s the positive. The batters are in good form, we have just to to put it all together.

"The bowlers performed magnificently last week against Hampshire and Sussex in the T20, it's just about putting performances with bat and ball."
