Wednesday 2nd September 2009

Geraint Jones and the Kent side will take an early lunch at 11.50am

Derbyshire v Kent LV County Championship Division 2, Day two. Derby

KENT will have to wait to build on their first day total of 232 for five after heavy overnight rain ruled out any play on Thursday morning.
Umpires Trevor Jesty and Vanburn Holder inspected at 10.45am and ruled that parts of the outfield were still too wet for a prompt start and decided that the players will take an early lunch at 11.50 with a view to a 12.30pm start.
Kent will resume in a reasonably healthy position with Geraint Jones unbeaten on 107 in tandem with Alex Blake who is 30 not out.
