Matthew Hoggard took 4 for 48 as Kent were bowled out for 212 after being put in against Yorkshire as the top two in the First Division met at Headingley yesterday. Hoggard was then summoned to join England's one day squad for the first of the internationals against Pakistan at Edgbaston today.

The regulations stipulate that Yorkshire's captain, David Byas, will be able to replace Hoggard with another bowler for the rest of the game. "The replacement will be able to take a full part as batsman and bowler but we cannot use Ryan Sidebottom because he has sore shins and I will be making a decision on which player to pull out of our second team before Thursday's play," Byas said.

Kent collapsed from 92 for 1 at lunch, with Chris Silverwood taking 3 for 38. Yorkshire were 5 for 0 at the close.
