Derbyshire v Kent at Derby on 7 to 10 September: LV County Championship: Division 2
Report by: John Brown
Match Result: Derbyshire (24 points) beat Kent (1) by 101 runs
The weather forecast for the four days of Derbyshire’s last home championship match was most unpromising, but only fifteen overs were lost in total. The start on the first day was delayed by forty-five minutes when Kent asked Derbyshire to bat first on a pitch which looked likely to help the seam bowlers. The early batsmen had to work hard to survive and they did not reach fifty, for the loss of one wicket, until the nineteenth over.
