Monday 06 August 2012
The Second Division leaders Derbyshire have gone 26 points clear at the top thanks to a two-wicket win over Kent.
Chasing 295 to win at Derby, the hosts resumed on 168 for 2 but lost overnight pair Usman Khawaja (56) and Wes Durston (55) as they slid from 197 for 2 to 215 for 6.
Charlie Shreck (above), who took 5 for 41 in the first innings, claimed another four wickets but Dan Redfern's 50 not out saw Derbyshire reach their winning target. Shreck's 4 for 99 gave him with match figures of 9 for 140.
Kent's defeat left them third in the table, five points behind second-placed Yorkshire.
