    2 no doubt all the bluster having been exhausted by the verbosity of prospective parliamentary candidates in the last two days leading up to the General Election This was the first day of the three days that play that had started on time The players took the field under a cloudy sky interrupted by the very occasional sunny interval Derbyshire declared on their overnight 392 6 County opened up with Pardoe and Dan Redfern They had to contend with the lively pace of Liam Hurt who was charging in from the Pavilion End and working up a good pace hoping that there may be a bit of green in the pitch The pair had taken the score to 26 when Redfern 14 was caught in the slips by Tom Knight off Hurt Peter Drysdale joined the impressive looking Pardoe Drysdale batted quite conservatively soaking up 36 balls for an unbeaten 7 while Pardoe had been scoring liberally going to 35 from 42 balls County declared their innings on 60 1 after 16 overs and Derbyshire forfeited their innings leaving County to chase 333 to win in a minimum of 78 overs an asking rate of 4 26 per over Pardoe and Redfern again opened up for County Redfern 17 being out in the final over before lunch in an identical fashion as to how he was out in the first innings caught in the slip cordon by Knight off Hurt County went into lunch on 44 1 off 11 overs In line with the political theme of the day I was surprised to find that we did not have U kippers for lunch The afternoon session was very much a stop start affair due to scattered showers being in the vicinity of Grace Road Drysdale had joined Pardoe and there was a swing to the left with three left handers being at the top of the order Pardoe added to his already impressive manifesto with an array of delightful shots to all parts of the ground Drysdale 6 went with score on 76 when Cork popped one and he was caught behind by keeper Poynton Cork was screwing the batsmen down and bowling a very tight spell from the Bennett End Pardoe moved to his 50 8x4 from 52 balls just before Drysdale s dismissal with the score on 76 Pardoe had deposited seamer Hemmings for three fours and a three in one over Aadil Ali joined Pardoe and elected to join Pardoe in to get after the majority of the bowling At 2 55pm the Umpires voted with their feet and took the players from the field as a result of a short sharp shower The players returned for 15 minutes play and as is often the case the tea interval was taken in near tropical conditions compared to the weather we had experienced for long periods earlier in the match Pardoe looked a good candidate for a century but fell marginally short and Matt Pardoe finished his innings

    McKay 2 65 from 20 overs and the new ball duo picked up 14 of the 17 wickets to fall in the game which was a mighty fine effort Despite overnight rain in south east Kent the final day started promptly at 11am with Kent making brisk work of picking up the two remaining Leicestershire wickets Ivan Thomas had Rob Taylor 34 caught overhead at slip by Matt Coles who then ripped out Shreck s middle stump to conclude the innings at 11 12am Thomas finished with career best figures of 4 48 as Kent faced an original victory target of 315 from a minimum of 91 overs After rain forced an early lunch at 12 30pm and the loss of 18 overs Kent set off on their pursuit at 1 10pm By the time the conditions had deteriorated enough to force a second stoppage where two more overs fell by the wayside the hosts had lost two key batsmen to Shreck First innings top scorer Joe Denly 9 was bowled and captain Rob Key 7 went leg before Bell Drummond and Brendan Nash steadied the ship during a vital third wicket stand of 105 in 32 5 overs Former England Under 19 bat Bell Drummond notched his maiden 50 of the summer from 120 balls but in looking to work a single to leg for his half century Nash perished leg before wicket to Taylor to make it 145 3 Bell Drummond and Sam Northeast 37 upped the run rate tempo and despite Shreck being well into a miserly 10 over post tea stint took Kent into the final hour needing another 139 off 20 overs Northeast fell lbw to McKay but Darren Stevens emerged from the Pavilion to breathe new life into the pursuit The Leicestershire born right
