Rouse, Haggett & Riley continue comeback from injury

Thursday 25th August 2016

Six Kent players enjoyed a workout as a combined side lost out to Scotland A.

Calum Haggett took five wickets, Matt Hunn took four scalps and Adam Riley grabbed two wickets as Kent joined forces with Northants.

The scoreboard branded the coalition “North Kent” as Adam Rouse made his comeback after 10 weeks out with injury, sharing the gloves with Callum Jackson.

Batting first, the combined side were dismissed for 216 with Riley making the best Kentish contribution of 16.

In reply, Matt Hunn’s 4/21 was the pick of the attack with Calum Haggett continuing his return from an ankle injury with 3/37 as Scotland A scored 255 all out.

“North Kent” fared slightly better in the second innings with Haggett’s 39 and Jackson’s 35, leaving their Scottish opponents a victory target of 190.

Haggett struck twice with the new ball before Riley, who has missed much of the season with a side strain, picked up 2/75 in a 19-over spell before Scotland A sealed the win.
