LV=CC: Tredwell takes seven, including a hat-trick, as Yorkshire crumble

Wednesday 15th September 2010

Kent off-spinner James Tredwell (pictured) this morning claimed a remarkable hat-trick as Kent dominate Yorkshire at Headingley on the final day of the domestic season.

The England star accounted for Adam Lyth (bowled), Gerard Brophy (stumped) and Jonathan Bairstow (caught by Dewald Nel) in successive balls to take the honour. It is the first time a Kent bowler has taken a hat-trick since 1996 when Martin McCague took out three Hampshire batsmen in a row at the St Lawrence Ground. The astonishing thing about that was Dean Headley had already taken a hat-trick, in Hampshire first-innings, in the same game.

The 28 year-old finished with stunning figures of 6.5-1-22-7, as Yorkshire were skittled for 130 – setting Kent a victory target of 90.

Commenting on Tredwell“s hat-trick, team director, Paul Farbrace, said: “I“m delighted for him. In the last two months, he has been superb for us; our most potent bowler and he deserves all the success he is getting. He bowled beautifully in their second innings and looked dangerous as soon as he came on. I“m sure everyone will join me in congratulating him on the hat-trick and the seven wickets in the second innings."
